Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry was shot and killed Tuesday after he encountered several suspects near Rio Rico, Ariz. At least four suspects are in custody while one is still being pursued.

Agent Terry's murder is a tragic reminder of the ever-present dangers U.S. Customs and Border Protection uniformed personnel face as they protect our nation's borders.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the Terry family for their tragic loss," said CBP Commissioner Alan Bersin. "Our commitment to Agent Terry and his family is that we will do everything possible to bring to justice those responsible for this despicable act."

The incident investigation is being led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Office. More information will be made available as available.

Bersin said that U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to be resolute in its commitment to securing our nation's borders while remembering all of the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Authorities urge anyone who sees anything suspicious in the area to report it immediately.
