When a man crossing into the U.S. illegally struck a U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent with rocks, a second agent fired his gun, killing the man.

Two agents called for help from San Diego police, saying they were being attacked with rocks and sticks near the border fence line around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Investigators said the incident involved three people crossing the border fence east of Dairy Mart Road near the San Yisdro Port of Entry.

A second agent was called in for backup when an agent spotted the group crossing through a hole in the fence.
