The Nogales Grand Avenue DeConcini border crossing in Nogales, Arizona is temporarily closed after a shooting Thursday night. A Customs and Border Protection officer shot at a truck leaving the U.S. for Mexico after the driver refused an order to stop and then allegedly tried to run over the officer. The momentum of the truck carried it into Mexico, where border agents there stopped the truck. They pulled a body out of the cab. The Nogales International newspaper reports there were two men in the vehicle and it was the driver who was shot and killed. The passenger was arrested.
