Details Emerge in Death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, Whose Attack Revealed ‘Fast & Furious’ Controversy
Details of the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry near the Arizona-Mexico border in 2010 were largely unknown – until now.
The Associated Press reports that armed men had sneaked into the U.S. to rob marijuana smugglers when the attack happened, according to an account given by prosecutors.
Watching the men from atop a small hill using night-vision gear, agents waited until the men got closer before yelling “police” in Spanish. The gunman opened fire, killing Terry.
“I’m hit,” Terry said, adding he couldn’t feel his legs.
Terry’s death revealed the government’s botched “Fast and Furious” gun-smuggling operation.
