Border Patrol Agent Susan Rodriguez was shot and killed after a car chase in Texas. Agent Rodriguez and two other Border Patrol agents were assisting a local agency trying to stop the suspects who had just committed another murder. The suspect also shot and killed Border Patrol Agent Ricardo Guillermo Salinas. A Cameron County sheriff's deputy was also shot and critically wounded.

The three officers were re-entering their cruisers when the suspect came out of a cornfield and ambushed them. None of them had time to return fire. The suspect was then taken into custody after a gunfight with several other officers at the scene and died later in the day from his wounds.

Agent Rodriguez had served with the Border Patrol for 6 years. She is survived by a child.
