A U.S. immigration agent was shot and wounded during a surveillance operation on a desolate stretch of highway near the Texas-Mexico border on Tuesday, and three people were in custody, law enforcement officials said.

The three in custody may be suspects or witnesses to the shooting of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent about 30 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border, near McAllen, Texas, Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Trevino said.

ICE agents and other law enforcement officers were conducting a surveillance operation when at least one person opened fire early on Tuesday, Trevino said.
