A U.S. Border Patrol agent shot and killed a man after he was struck in the face with a rock, officials said Tuesday.
The shooting occurred around 6:40 a.m. along Otay Mountain Truck Trail near Alta Road, southeast of Otay Reservoir and east of State Route 125.
San Diego County sheriff’s homicide detective Lt. Glenn Giannantonio said two agents were pursuing what they believed to be undocumented immigrants in the area approximately 11 miles north of the Otay Mesa Port of Entry.
