Wrongful shooting at the border?

The U.S. Border Patrol is declining comment on a $25 million wrongful death lawsuit filed in El Paso over the 2010 shooting of a 15-year-old Mexican boy.

The lawsuit, filed Monday, also alleges civil rights violations.

Border Patrol spokesman Ramiro Cordero on Tuesday told The Associated Press that the investigation into the June death continues and the agency would not comment.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of the family of Sergio Adrian Hernandez Guereca.

The Border Patrol has not released the name of the agent who shot the teen.

Family attorney Bob Hilliard of Corpus Christi on Monday said witnesses have denied report of rocks being thrown at agents when the shooting happened.

If you don't want to get shot illegally crossing an international border, don't illegally cross an international border.
