FORT HANCOCK, TX — A man being sought in connection with a 2010 killing in Oklahoma City has surrendered to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers. The man turned himself in to CBP officers working at the Fort Hancock port of entry Friday night after entering the U.S. from Mexico as a pedestrian.
The suspect, 23-year-old Israel Davila, is wanted in connection with a September 12, 2010 killing in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
After identifying himself as a wanted person CBP officers took custody of the suspect and performed queries to confirm his identity. CBP officers also confirmed the outstanding homicide warrant. CBP turned the man over to Hudspeth County Sherriff’s Department deputies.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers’ primary mission is anti-terrorism; they screen all people, vehicles, and goods entering the United States, while facilitating the flow of legitimate trade and travel into and out of the United States. Their mission also includes carrying out traditional border-related responsibilities, including narcotics interdiction, enforcing immigration law, protecting the nation’s food supply and agriculture industry from pests and diseases, and enforcing trade laws.
