There must be some sort of cryptic message in this story. I don't understand it.
Basic hunter safety tells you not to fire unless you know your target. Both sides obviously violated that rule.
The presence of a suspect is interesting but needs to be fleshed out.
Uniformed officers with radios should never be firing on one another.

I agree with BO, the explanation needs explaining. Better still, America needs to get a grip on its love affair with guns. Anything that is overused is going to have more errors. I hear a lot about guns not killing people, but there sure are a lot of dead folks who are victims of guns. If you don't want regulation from the non-gun crowd, then get the lead out, so to speak, and be a part of the solution. Instead, most gun rights groups love to stir up fear and paranoia, so that after every gun tragedy, more irresponsible people buy guns, increasing the risk of future disasters. All the NRA lobbying is about making money for the gun manufacturers, not protecting your rights.

Sad this man lost his life. Even more sad is the low probability that anything good will come out of this tragedy, except that more people will buy guns and hate our neighbors to the south.

I don't think we will ever know the truth. Rifle fire and pesos etc makes the investigation questionable. Not uncommon under this administration concerning immigration.
