BISBEE — The Cochise County Sheriff's Office is investigating the reported shooting death of a suspected illegal immigrant by a U.S. Border Patrol Agent Thursday night.
Sheriff's spokeswoman Carol Capas said the incident happened around 9 p.m. Thursday, approximately one-half mile east of Highway 80 near Apache.

"Sheriff's deputies and investigators responded to the scene and located a Hispanic male subject, possibly in his late 20s, who had been shot," Capas said Friday.
According to initial information that county deputies and investigators gleaned at the scene, the still unidentified man was a part of a group, that the Border Patrol was tracking, Capas said.
The report indicates BP agents took two men into custody without incident, but a third man fled and was eventually located "hiding under a mesquite bush" by a federal agent, Capas said.
Reportedly, the man struggled with the agent attempting to get the federal officers weapon, she said.
The BP agent, "fearing for his personal safety and potential serious injury, pulled his handgun and fired at the suspect," Capas said.
The man was struck in the body area and "succumbed to his injuries at the scene," she said.
Since the incident happened in Cochise County, the Sheriff's Office is conducting the investigation, and a tandem investigation will probably be done by the Border Patrol, Capas said.
The deceased man was transported to the Pima County Medical Examiners' Office for the completion of an autopsy and possible identification. The Mexican Consulate in Douglas was notified of this incident and will be assisting as needed in this investigation by the Cochise County Sheriff's Office, she said.
