Shootout On Border Leads To Pot Bust

Border patrol agents who were in a gunfight over the weekend recovered half a ton of marijuana.

Authorities said agents fired gunshots into Mexico after coming under attack while making a drug bust along the Rio Grande.

They said a truck pulled up on the U.S. side of the border when someone opened fire on the agents from the Mexican side.

A border patrol spokeswoman said no agents were injured during the fire fight.
