I would think possibly a vehicle crash. The comment about "responding to activity" and that Fox News would have been salivating to report some USBP vs Cartel gun battle make me think car crash.

RIP and Godspeed gentlemen.

Possible. Wasn't a vehicle crash. I was told ElPaso ERT is on scene and tracking the suspect/s, so definitely some sort of assault.

In my day, it was that way. Things must have changed. Then again, in my day, USBP was the leading contributor for wound ballistics data in the fed gov, due to the number of people shot by Patrol Agents each year.

CBS evening news just said an internal email from BP speculated that the agents may have been injured by accident falling into a ravine. How does a second agent radio back that he found the other agent unconscious then be injured himself???
