US officer at border crossing shoots driver going to Mexico

A U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer shot and wounded a driver who was trying to enter Mexico at a crossing in Arizona, the agency said Friday.

A CBP statement released Saturday said the man was shot Thursday night in Nogales, Arizona as he accelerated the pickup he was driving toward Mexico.

The release explained that the CBP officer was on duty at the port of entry and attempted to stop a vehicle leaving the United States. The driver had been shot in the head and a passenger was arrested, the paper reported, citing local outlet the Nogales International.

A CBP statement Thursday night said the driver was taken to a hospital in Nogales, Sonora, but did not provide his condition.

Teresa Small, a CPB spokesperson, told The Associated Press the driver survived the shooting.

Trump announces summit with Kim will take place in Hanoi
Critics fear the second summit is an attempt by Kim to win relief from US sanctions without any real promise of denuclearisation. The Koreas remain technically at war as the Korean War ended with an armistice, not a peace treaty.

Migrants told authorities that buses and trucks dropped them off throughout the night on a nearby Mexican highway that runs parallel to the border and they entered the US together to wait for agents to find them.

The truck's momentum then carried it onto the Mexican side of the buffer zone between the two countries.

According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, a helicopter spotted the group amid freezing temperatures while investigating a possible campfire.

After shots were fired, CBP says the vehicle continued to roll across the border when Mexican authorities gave the man first aid.
