TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -
On Sunday, Sept. 4, Border Patrol agents with the Tucson Sector arrested a man, identified as Francisco Javier Rosas-Molina, for illegally crossing into the U.S.

Rosas-Molina was previously convicted in Mexico for the 2003 murder of U.S. Border Patrol agent, Jorge Salomon-Martinez near Cananea, Sonora, Mexico. According to a recent release Salomon had been traveling off-duty when Rosas-Molina attacked him for being a BP agent. Rosas-Molina served 11 years in prison for the killing.

This is not the first time BP agents have arrested Rosas-Molina, in 2002 he was apprehended by the Cochise County Sheriff's Office for possession of marijuana for transport or sale. He served 108 days in county jail for that offense.

Rosas-Molina now faces prosecution by the U.S. Attorney's Office for illegal re-entry of an aggravated felon.


Mariposa port closed after shots fired incident

Law enforcement vehicles are parked in front of the southbound lanes at the Mariposa Port of Entry following a shooting incident Thursday afternoon.
Federal officers opened fire on a southbound vehicle at the Mariposa Port of Entry on Thursday afternoon after the driver allegedly swerved at them while trying to flee into Mexico.

The driver, whose identity was not immediately released, sustained multiple gunshot wounds and was airlifted to a Tucson-area hospital, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a news release. A passenger, who was also not identified, sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was taken into custody. No law enforcement officials were injured.

CBP said the driver was attempting to evade Border Patrol agents when he swerved his vehicle in an apparent attempt to hit officers working at the port. CBP officers and a Border Patrol agent fired their service weapons at the driver in response, the agency said.

The incident occurred at approximately 2 p.m. and both the north- and southbound lanes at the port were closed in response. The northbound lanes soon reopened, but the southbound side was expected to remain closed to traffic for the remainder of the day.

In the immediate aftermath, members of the Mexican media stationed on the south side of the port were able to see a burgundy-colored pickup surrounded by yellow crime-scene tape off the roadway in tall grass on the west side of the facility. Its windshield and passenger-side windows had been shot out.

Meanwhile on the north side of the port, an array of marked and unmarked federal law enforcement vehicles blocked the southbound lanes while Nogales Police Department officers, stationed a few hundred feet away on State Route 189, detoured passenger vehicles away from the facility. A long line of commercial trucks – which can only cross into Mexico through the Mariposa port and could not be detoured through the Dennis DeConcini crossing downtown – snaked north along the highway.

The FBI, CBP's Office of Professional Responsibility and Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations are jointly investigating the incident, CBP said.
