    Police: Border Patrol agent fatally shoots woman

    Police: Border Patrol agent fatally shoots woman

    CHULA VISTA — A Border Patrol agent shot and killed a woman after she struck him with her car in Chula Vista Friday afternoon, police said.

    The shooting occurred on Moss Street near Oaklawn Avenue about 1 p.m., Chula Vista police said.

    Plainclothes Border Patrol agents were in the area to serve a felony warrant when the agent was struck by the woman’s car, said Border Patrol Deputy Chief Rodney Scott.

    The agent was lodged in the windshield and carried several hundred yards on the hood.

    “Fearing for his life, he discharged his weapon to get the vehicle to stop,” Scott said. He was the only agent who fired.

    The woman, whose name was not released, died at the scene. The agent was taken to a hospital with unknown injuries, although witnesses said he appeared to be OK.

    Authorities did not release further details, including what led up to the agent being struck.

    Hector Salazar, who lives in the area, said he was standing at his mailbox looking through letters when he heard a man yell, “Stop!”
    He looked up and saw a man in civilian clothing on the hood of a two-door car, aiming a gun at the windshield.

    The man then started pulling the trigger, shooting about five rounds.
    Salazar hit the ground, and moments later saw other plainclothes agents approach the car.

    Eduardo Comacho, 22, was walking on Woodlawn Avenue with his friend when they heard about seven shots.

    He saw a man in a red shirt, without a badge, holding his gun. He appeared shaken. Other undercover officers joined him at the scene, pulling out their badges as they walked.

    “The lady was hanging out the door, barely moving,” Comacho said. The agent’s checked her pulse, and medics who arrived shortly after began CPR on her on the ground. Comacho could see bullet wounds in her chest, shoulder, arm and leg.

    “He did not miss,” Comacho said.

    The arrest warrant was for someone else other than the woman, and that person had not been apprehended, Scott said.

    Moss has been closed between Woodlawn Avenue and Broadway during the crime scene investigation, which could last several hours.

    They were there with a warrant to arrest a person.
    The person they shot was not that person and that person is still at large.

    CHULA VISTA - A U.S. Border Patrol agent shot and killed a woman in a South Bay neighborhood Friday afternoon while a team of undercover officers were trying to arrest someone else on a felony charge.

    The gunfire in the 600 block of Moss Street in Chula Vista was reported about 1 p.m., according to police and federal officials. The woman died at the scene.

    The woman, who has not been identified, intentionally rammed the plain-clothes agent with her car, and carried the man on the hood for several hundred yards, U.S. Border Patrol Deputy Chief Rodney Scott said.

    "He was hit with the vehicle and got lodged on the windshield," Scott said.

    Fearing for his life, the agent shot the woman through the windshield several times to get her to stop, he said. San Diego 6 reporter Derek Staahl counted at least 10 bullet holes in the windshield.

    The woman was in a dark-colored Honda Accord near Woodlawn Avenue when she was shot. There was no one else in the vehicle at the time, Scott said.

    The agent was taken to the hospital for treament.

    "I do not have a current update on his medical condition, but he was impacted by a vehicle pretty hard," Scott said.

    Neighbor Hector Salazar told San Diego 6 he was reading his mail in his home when the deadly shooting occurred a short distance away.

    "I thought [the agent] was a civilian shooting another civilian, and I tried to call 911," he said. "But then suddenly I saw other agents."

    The person targeted by the felony warrant operation was not captured, Scott said. The Deputy Chief would not comment on that person's relationship to the shooting victim.

    Border Patrol agent fatally shoots woman

    CHULA VISTA — A plainclothes Border Patrol agent clinging to the hood of a moving car shot and killed the woman behind the wheel in Chula Vista Friday afternoon, authorities said.

    There were several witnesses to the 1 p.m. shooting, which occurred on Moss Street near Oaklawn Avenue in a residential area lined by stucco apartment complexes and small homes.

    Border Patrol agents were in the neighborhood to serve a felony warrant when the agent was struck by the woman’s car, said Border Patrol Deputy Chief Rodney Scott.

    The agent was lodged in the windshield and carried several hundred yards on the hood of the Honda, he said.

    “Fearing for his life, he discharged his weapon to get the vehicle to stop,” Scott said. He was the only agent who fired.

    The agent was taken to a hospital with unknown injuries, although witnesses said he appeared to be OK.

    Family members identified the woman as Valeria “Monique” Alvarado, a 32-year-old housewife who grew up in Chula Vista and lived in Southcrest. She died at the scene.

    She had five children, ranging in ages 3 to 17.

    Said her husband, Gilbert Alvarado, before choking up.

    “She has a huge heart,” said cousin Bernice Ratcliffe.

    Several family members sobbed and hugged each other after speaking with investigators, and they demanded answers.

    “Where’s the evidence my wife threatened a trained officer?” her husband asked. “I want justice.”

    They said they didn’t know what had brought her to that neighborhood.

    Authorities did not release further information, including how the agent was struck.

    Chula Vista police said the crash occurred on Moss closer to Broadway, and the car drove west, coming to rest near Oaklawn. A large dent was left in the windshield where the officer had impacted, police said.

    Witnesses gave differing versions of how the shooting unfolded, including whether they saw the agent on the car.

    Hector Salazar, who lives in the area, said he was standing at his mailbox looking through letters when he heard a man yell, “Stop!”

    He looked up and saw a man in civilian clothing on the hood of a two-door car, aiming a gun at the windshield.

    The man then started pulling the trigger, shooting about five rounds.
    Salazar hit the ground, and moments later saw other plainclothes agents approach the car.

    Eduardo Comacho, 22, was walking on Woodlawn Avenue with his friend when they heard about seven shots.

    He saw a man in a red shirt, without a badge, holding his gun. He appeared shaken. Other undercover officers joined him, pulling out their badges as they walked.

    “The lady was hanging out the door, barely moving,” Comacho said. The agents checked her pulse, and medics who arrived shortly after began CPR on her on the ground. Comacho could see what appeared to be bullet wounds in her chest, shoulder, arm and leg.
    “He did not miss,” Comacho said.

    Ayanna Evans, 19, who lives in a neighboring apartment complex, said she never saw the agent on the car.

    She said she happened to look out the window to see the Honda backing up slowly, and a man in a red shirt walking toward the car.

    “Then I heard, ‘Pop, pop, pop,’” she said. She yelled at her children and aunt with her in the apartment to get down.

    Apartment resident Prince Watson said he also saw the driver going in reverse, with no one on the car.

    “She wasn’t speeding or driving erratic at all. I heard the agent say, ‘Stop.’ He was in the street and started shooting and walking toward the car,” Watson recalled.

    Authorities did not name who they were going to arrest, but said it was not the woman.

    Christian Ramirez, an immigrant rights activist with Southern Border Community Coalition, said the shooting was “troubling.”

    “The victim was not wanted by authorities and she was a U.S. citizen,” Ramirez said.

    Border Patrol agent shoots, kills woman in Calif.


    Updated: Sep 29, 2012 12:40 AM CDT

    CHULA VISTA, Calif. (AP) - A Border Patrol agent fatally shot a 32-year-old mother of five Friday in suburban San Diego as he rode on the hood of her car after she ran into him, authorities and family members said.

    The agent fired after being driven several hundred yards on the hood, Chula Vista police Capt. Gary Wedge told The Associated Press. The woman was later identified in a police statement as Valeria Alvarado.

    The shooting occurred about five miles north of the Mexican border as plainclothes agents were looking to serve a felony warrant in the area to someone other than Alvarado, Border Patrol Deputy Chief Rodney Scott told U-T San Diego.

    Scott said the agent was stuck atop the car as Alvarado drove.

    "Fearing for his life, he discharged his weapon to get the vehicle to stop," Scott said. No other agents fired.

    Alvarado was declared dead at the scene, and the agent was taken to a hospital. His injuries were not clear.

    After talking to investigators, family members including her husband and cousin told U-T San Diego that Alvarado was a housewife and mother of five children ranging from ages 3 to 17 who went by the name Monique.

    "I love her to the fullest. That's my heart," husband Gilbert Alvarado said. "Where's the evidence my wife threatened a trained officer? I want justice."

    Family members said Valeria Alvarado grew up in Chula Vista where the shooting took place but had been living about five miles away in the Southcrest neighborhood of San Diego, and they did not know why she was in her former hometown.

    Hector Salazar, one of several neighbors who witnessed the incident, said he saw a man in civilian clothes on the hood of a black car aiming a gun at the windshield.

    Salazar told U-T San Diego the man started pulling the trigger, and he heard about five shots. Moments later, other plainclothes agents approached the car, he said.

    The person named in the warrant the agents were serving was not apprehended, Scott said.

    The FBI and Chula Vista police are investigating.
