Investigators Find Gun Believed to Be Used in Murder of Border Patrol Agent in Front of Family

Investigators in Texas believe they’ve found the handgun used in the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent while he was fishing with his family on vacation, Breitbart.com reports.

Scouring an area where the suspects were known to hang out, authorities found a handgun that they believe was used during the botched robbery on Aug. 3.

Border Patrol Agent Javier Vega was fishing with his family in the southern part of Willacy County when two men, one of whom had been deported four times, tried to rob the group.

Vega tried to stop the robbery by firing back, authorities said.

“If it is the weapon it can only help strengthen our case and better prove that they shot him,” Willacy County Sheriff Larry Spence said. “Right now we are glad that the weapon was recovered and it didn’t fall into the wrong hands were it could have been used to commit further atrocities.”
