Two Mexican nationals were indicted on charges of capital murder and attempted murder in the shooting death of an off-duty Border Patrol agent, the Valley Morning Star reports.

Indicted were Gustavo Tijerina-Sandoval, 30, and Ismael Hernandez-Vallejo, 40, who are accused of being involved in the Aug. 3 shooting of Border Patrol Agent Javier Vega Jr.

They also were indicted in connection with the nonfatal shooting of Javier Vega Sr., whose son was killed.

Both men face the possibility of the death penalty.

The Vegas were shot while on vacation and fishing with family in the Rio Hondo area. Vega Jr. fired back, authorities said, but did not strike anyone.
