( – According to reports, a suspected smuggler caused a multi-car accident near a US border crossing station in Texas on Saturday morning, killing three persons.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection stated that the individual was shot while in detained at the Ysleta Border Patrol Station. According to the FBI, he was transported to a hospital, where he died. However, the Border Patrol provided no information on the events leading up to the shooting.

In El Paso, the Mexican Consulate said that the man who died was a Mexican national who had been investigated at the immigration station when they found out there were charges against him.
