US officer at border crossing shoots driver going to Mexico

Border Fence Arizona

The shooting occurred in the border city where USA troops recently installed razor wire along portions of an 18-foot border wall, in some spots reaching almost ground level.

Reports say Nogales Mayor Arturo Garino said the shooting took place after the driver refused to stop and tried to run over the CBP officer.

The officer fired his gun at the vehicle after it fled south into Mexico eventually stopping several yards from the port, the release said.

"Large bus loads of individuals are being bussed up to the border and we don't have any infrastructure in that area", the official said on the call with reporters.

CBP said it would release more information about the shooting.

"Placing coiled concertina wire strands on the ground is typically only found in a war, battlefield, or prison setting, and not in an urban setting", the city council's resolution reads.

2018 the fourth-hottest year in history
The last five years-from 2014 to 2018-are the warmest years ever recorded in the 139 years that NOAA has tracked global heat. Global temperatures rose 1.5 degrees Fahrenheit (0.83 degrees Celsius) than the mean of warming from 1951 to 1980.

Garino told CBS Evening News last month that adding to the border wall, which his city has had for more than 20 years, would be ineffective. The small Arizona border city is fighting back against the installation of razor fencing that now covers the entirety of a tall border fence.

Mexican border officials surrounded the truck and discovered the driver was dead, and arrested a passenger.

The Wednesday declaration comes days after it was announced that the Military will continue installing contra wire along the United States-Mexico border.

He was initially taken to hospital in Nogales, Mexico.

Photos published by the Nogales International newspaper show rows of concertina wire stacked along the approximately two-story wall. Illegal crossings in that area have dropped steeply in recent years.
