Shooting of man by Border Patrol agent renews debate on use of force
Reporting from Tijuana -- The three men crawled through a sewage-crusted drain and then jumped the border fence, determined to get into San Diego. They encountered U.S. Border Patrol agents just as determined to stop them.

When the agents captured one man, they were pelted by rocks and sticks, according to U.S. authorities. In response, an agent shot one of the rock-throwers in the head, a fatal wound that knocked him off the fence and back into Mexico.
