Thread: Shooting kills 2 suspected crossers.

  1. #1
    Guest
    Two people believed to be illegal border crossers were shot dead near
    Red
    Rock Wednesday afternoon after someone opened fire on a group gathered
    around a stock pond, a Pinal County Sheriff's spokesman said.

    Sheriff's officials said late Wednesday that a search would resume this
    morning to try to find the others in the group. Authorities are
    concerned
    that others in the group who ran from the stock pond may have been
    wounded
    in the shooting and are still out in the desert.

    Mike Minter, a sheriff's spokesman, said at least 12 people believed to
    be
    illegal entrants were at the stock pond in a fairly remote desert area
    about four miles from Interstate 10. Red Rock is just north of the Pima
    County line.

    One person in the group said a vehicle approached the stock pond
    between
    noon and 1 p.m. and someone in the vehicle opened fire.

    The group scattered immediately, but one person eventually made it to a
    phone to call for help after 4 p.m., Minter said.

    Pinal deputies responded to the area and found the two dead but could
    not
    find any others in the group except for the person who had called them,
    Minter said.

    Investigators continued looking for other victims of the attack late
    into
    the night with the assistance of a Department of Public Safety
    helicopter
    and dogs.

    It is unknown if anybody else in the group was wounded or killed,
    Minter said.

    It wasn't known late Tuesday how many people were in the vehicle or
    what
    kind of firearm was used in the shooting
