“A U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent was killed and two others seriously wounded early Thursday in a shootout with suspected smugglers aboard a vessel off the coast of Puerto Rico, officials said. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told a Senate panel that the deceased agent, who was not immediately identified, was part of CBP’s Air and Marine Operations unit and that the others were ‘gravely wounded.’ The Department of Homeland Security later said one of the two smugglers also was killed in the 8 a.m. clash, about 14 miles off the coast of Cabo Rojo. The wounded agents suffered ‘various gunshot wounds,’ the agency said, adding that the victims were airlifted to a Puerto Rico trauma center. The second suspect was arrested by federal authorities.” (11/17/22)
