Mexico’s foreign ministry has accused a U.S. border patrol agent of fatally shooting a Mexican citizen over the weekend.
The shooting occurred near the bridge that connects Brownsville, Texas, with the Mexican town of Matamoros, the foreign ministry said Sunday in a statement condemning the violence.
The ministry said a Mexican national died after being shot by the U.S. agent, but did not release details about the circumstances surrounding the Saturday violence.
