Mexican federal police say they have detained four men suspected of involvement in the killing of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Robert Rosas.
Elias Alvarez Hernandez, the coordinator of federal police in Baja California state, says the men were allegedly part of an immigrant smuggling ring. Twenty-one immigrants were found with them when the men were detained near Tecate on Saturday.
Hernandez says the suspects are two brothers and two taxi
drivers who allegedly worked for them. Police seized four guns
during the detentions.
Hernandez told a news conference that one of the suspects told
police another man detained Friday with a 9 mm pistol in his
possession was the one who shot agent Rosas.
