Update: 2 U.S. Border Patrol Agents Shot, 1 Killed, Near Brian Terry Border Patrol Station

Two U.S. Border Patrol agents were shot, one fatally, Tuesday morning in an area in south Arizona known as a major drug-smuggling corridor.
 
The identities of the agents were not immediately released, but the shooting occurred at the Brian Terry Station near Naco, Ariz., which is a remote area just south of Tucson. The station was named after an agent who was killed in the line of duty in December 2010.

The agents who were shot were on patrol with a third agent, who was not harmed, according to the president of the National Border Patrol Council, a union representing about 17,000 border patrol agents. The agents were on horseback at the time of the shooting. The injured agent was airlifted to the University Medical Center in Tucson where he is listed in guarded condition.
The shooting occurred after an alarm was triggered on one of the many sensors along the border and the three agents went to investigate according to Cochise County officials.

The search for the killer is being led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office. The area is currently flooded with agents on horseback and helicopters conducting a search for the suspects. (Sources: Fox News, NBC News, KNST Radio)

I don't like illegal immigration too but you can't just post fake news!

This is a direct News post. There is no mention that the Border Agents were shot by drug smugglers. That was still under investigation at the time of the article. The article does state that agents were shot in "a major drug-smuggling corridor"

No fake news was posted!!
