The U.S. Border Patrol acknowledged Thursday that an agent shot a Mexican citizen along the border.

The patrol’s Laredo sector said in a statement that the shooting occurred after rocks were thrown at agents.

“A weapon was discharged by Border Patrol. All appropriate authorities were notified and the shooting is under investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation,” the statement read.

The agency didn’t say whether the shooting was fatal.

Mexican officials said one of their citizens died in the shooting and accused the agency of excessive force.
