Four U.S. road workers were shot at by at least one gunman using a high-powered rifle from across the Mexico border, sheriff officials have said.
A white pickup truck was seen fleeing the area on the Mexican side of the border in a ghost town near Fort Hancock, Texas.
The bullets struck private land along the unpaved Indian Hot Springs Road – around half a mile from the border fence.
The workers had been filling holes along the road caused by rainstorm damage.
