A Border Patrol agent has been cleared of wrongdoing in the fatal shooting an unarmed man accused of smuggling drugs in southern Arizona, the Associated Press reports.

Agent Daniel Marquez’ actions appeared to be “justified under the circumstances,” the Pima County Attorney’s Office said.

The shooting came after a 15-mile chase on May 30, when Marquez shot 31-year-old Jose Luis Arambula.

According to reports, Marquez firef nine shots at Arambula before striking him once in the head.

Arambula’s car was later found with about 500 pounds of marijuana.
