At about 7:30 p.m. on Monday, June 3, a white pickup truck arrived at the San Ysidro port of entry, along the San Diego/Tijuana border to enter the United States. The driver failed to stop for an inspection and there was an officer involved shooting.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is cooperating with investigations by other law enforcement agencies. Per CBP policy, the agency will also conduct an internal review of the incident.
Both vehicle and pedestrian northbound operations at the port of entry were suspended for about 30 minutes before operations resumed. Although the westbound vehicle egress to exit the port of entry is closed Monday evening to preserve the scene, the eastbound vehicle egress remains operational, with minimal delays. There was no impact to southbound pedestrian or vehicle traffic at the port of entry.
Additional information and updates will be provided by the lead investigating agency, the San Diego Police Department.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between official ports of entry. CBP is charged with securing the borders of the United States while enforcing hundreds of laws and facilitating lawful trade and travel.
