SAN DIEGO – A man who was shot by a Border Patrol agent in Otay Mesa early Sunday as he grappled for the officer's gun has died at a hospital, authorities said.
The shooting in the 2300 block of Roll Drive happened about 2:15 a.m., as the officer tried to get a motorist out of an SUV, San Diego police homicide Lt. Kevin Rooney said.

The officer had spotted the Chevy Suburban driving in the area of Roll and Siempre Viva Road and became suspicious because of reports that a Suburban had been seen in the area picking up suspected undocumented immigrants, Rooney said.

There are also no businesses that stay open that late in the area so the presence of the SUV was doubly suspicious, Rooney said.

The agent stopped the vehicle and took the man's driver's license, then asked the motorist to step out of the vehicle, Rooney said.

The man had a female passenger with him, Rooney said.

The driver tried to drive away but the agent, who was standing on the running board, reached in and turned off the ignition, Rooney said.

The driver quickly shifted gears into drive and tried to start the vehicle again, but the agent once more turned off the ignition and put the gearshift into park, Rooney said.

The third time the driver tried to start the SUV, the agent pulled his gun and ordered him to stop but the suspect grabbed the pistol's barrel and tried to wrest it from the agent.

The officer fired the gun and wounded the driver, Rooney said.

The suspect's passenger was not injured.

The suspect was taken to a trauma center, where he died at 3:31 a.m., Rooney said.

Agents recovered a handgun from the suspect's waistband and also a set of handcuffs.

The woman was arrested on outstanding felony warrants and was booked into Las Colinas Detention Facility.

San Diego Police Department homicide detectives are investigating the case with the FBI and U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

The agent involved is a 10-year veteran of the Border Patrol.

Good pop!

Of course there'll be apologists for the bad guys who'll think stopping a suspicious vehicle is a violation of Constiutional rights or something. The "Your papers please!" crowd
