US border guard shoots down a Russian

The shooting was a reaction to an attempt to illegally cross the border east of Lucville, Arizona.

An American border guard wounded a Russian citizen with a firearm. A possible reason is an attempt to cross the border with Mexico. This was announced on Friday by the US Border and Customs Service.

The shooting, as noted, was a reaction to an attempt to illegally cross the border east of Lucville, Arizona. “When trying to detain this person, a physical skirmish occurred and the agent fired using a firearm, hitting a suspect,” RT cites the Border and Customs Service. 

The wounded Russian was taken to the hospital by helicopter; nothing threatens his life. The border guard did not receive serious injuries.
