According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), on Thursday at approximately 2:55 a.m., “camera operators viewed five subjects standing on the west side of the border after they illegally crossed into the United States. The group had traversed east through the dry Colorado riverbed. One of the subjects was seen shooting several times toward the secondary border wall west of San Luis.”
A short time later, according to CBP, “a truck arrived from Mexico and picked up all five subjects. The individuals crossed back into Mexico and drove away on a nearby Mexican highway before agents could respond.”
The international boundary along the Colorado River runs north/south with Mexico to the west and the United States to the east. The border wall is not located directly on the international boundary.
