TUCSON, AZ — Border Patrol agents in Arizona were reportedly fired upon by a Mexican military helicopter that traveled across the border.

KVOA-TV reports that Mexican authorities were conducting a drug interdiction operation when the incident happened early Thursday morning on the Tohono O’odham Indian Nation. The Mexican chopper fired at the agents and then flew back into Mexico.

Art del Cueto, Border Patrol Tucson Sector union president, tells KVOA that they called and apologized for the incident.

“The incident occurred after midnight and before 6 a.m. Helicopter flew into the U.S. and fired on two U.S. Border Patrol agents,” del Cueto said in a statement to KVOA.

“The incident occurred west of the San Miguel Gate on the Tohono O’odham Indian Nation. The agents were unharmed. The helicopter went back into Mexico. Mexico then contacted U.S. authorities and apologized for the incident.”

Andy Adame, Border Patrol spokesperson, said that Mexican authorities fired two shots at the border agents.

“Two shots were fired from the helicopter but no injuries or damage to U.S. property were reported,” Adame told KVOA.

The incident is under investigation.

  1. yes the lad has been boring me as the 15 minutes ran to about 17.75 too long for such a story

    I usually see the mejicano army being shot down in a Sergio Leon movie, but lest I digress, the idea that shooting anything at anybody is fun is the product of some type of excessive abuse …. self perhaps?

  2. Hey Insider- reverse racism? Ese- I didn’t even know Mexico had an army. Harmless though, like soccer, could’nt hit the broadside of a barn. Let’s get some racism action going on here…..Desertrek. I’m bored of hearing about the 15 minutes of fame of young Brooks the courageous. Chum’s in the water…..

    • Mejico has a decent Army, considering Mejico only spends 1% of their mula on it. Mejico and Canada are so lucky to be neighbors of Uncle Sam as they get free protection and can talk all the crap they want, after all Tio Sam does owe us Indio’s.

    • Sorry DR….but, that is the news at the moment. Bringing down a Airliner and shooting a couple of rounds off at Border Patrol Agents while yelling out the word of the month is all in fun, right Ann Creature. Goooooooooooooooooooool. Pluto’s.
