Mexico’s foreign ministry has accused a U.S. Border Patrol agent of fatally shooting a Mexican citizen along the border.

The shooting occurred Monday after agents in the area of Laredo, Texas, “were subjected to rocks being thrown at them from the Mexican side of the Rio Grande River,” the patrol’s Laredo sector said Thursday.

“A weapon was discharged by Border Patrol. All appropriate authorities were notified and the shooting is under investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation,” the statement said.

The U.S. statement did not specify whether a death occurred.
