Shots fired at suspected stash house in South Texas, CBP says


EL PASO, Texas (Border Report) — Police in McAllen, Texas, uncovered a suspected stash house while responding to a shots-fired call on Sunday morning.

Police officers were investigating reports of gunfire when they found 10 individuals and a firearm inside a home.

Officers requested the assistance of Border Patrol agents, who determined that all but one of the 10 individuals were in the country illegally. Agents took custody of eight individuals, while McAllen police arrested the individual suspected of discharging the firearm. The other individual was U.S. citizen described only as a juvenile.
