EL PASO, TX - The FBI is releasing very little details into the investigation of a teen shot and killed by an El Paso Border Patrol agent.

That shooting happened eight days ago, and claimed the life of 14-year-old Sergio Adrian Hernandez-Huereca.

U.S. Border Patrol officials say the agents were patrolling the area on bikes when a group, including Hernandez-Huereca, assaulted them with rocks. The FBI says the agent ordered them to stop, but when they didn't, he fired his weapon several times, shooting and killing the teen.

The FBI will not release the name of the Border Patrol agent, or say whether or not he's been involved in any shootings before.

Can anyone please tell me why is it necessary to know the agents name? Dont you realize that if you publish his name you will make him a target for all the uneducated people that think its ok to threaten the agents that are making this country safe for you to live in. How is knowing that agents name going to make your life any better?

Everyone in Juarez knows that anyone hanging around the Puente Negro "Black Bridge" is up to no good. They are criminals, drug dealers and human smugglers. There are no innocent people in the area, nor would they take the chance to be there. Remember that David slew Goliath with a stone. The Border Patrol agent involved should have all the support due him for protecting our country. Quit defending the criminals !!!
