Tucson Police Investigate Fatal Shooting by Off-Duty Border Patrol Agent

By Steve Neavling

Tucson police are investigating a fatal shooting by an off-duty Border Patrol agent. 

The unidentified agent shot 38-year-old Edward Colin Colteaux, who was involved in an escalating confrontation with another person on Tucson’s west side on Saturday night, KVOA reports.

Details of the shooting remain murky. Witnesses said they saw the agent intervene and discharge his gun while Colteaux was in a confrontation. 

Border Patrol is conducting an administrative investigation. 

In a separate incident, a prosecutor said that members of a U.S. Marshals task force were justified in shooting Winston Smith Jr. on June 3 while trying to arrest him as he sat in an SUV.

Michael Mason, a retired executive assistant director of the FBI, could be traveling or playing golf after a long, successful career. 

Instead, Mason recently began driving a school bus in Chesterfield County, Virginia, CBS affiliate WTVR reports.

Mason decided to get behind the wheel after hearing about a shortage in school bus drivers. 

“When the pandemic struck there were so many people that were doing so many extra things. People like you who still have to get out here. People like grocery store workers. People like telecommunications workers. All kinds of folks who still had to do their job,” Mason said. “And I felt like I can be doing something to help in this post-pandemic recovery.”

Mason retired from the FBI in 2007 and worked as chief security officer for Verizon from 2008 to 2020 before retiring.

Mason said he’s just doing his part to make the world a little better.

“I believe if all of us gave a little something,” he said. “Wow, how we could impact the world. How we could change the world.”

Mason worked for the FBI for 23 years and served as special agent in charge of the Sacramento Division and assistant director in charge of the Washington Field Office.
