Border Patrol agents riding an airboat are attacked with rocks. It happened near Zacate Creek on Thursday afternoon.

According to officials, people along the riverbanks on the Mexican side of the Rio Grande started throwing rocks at agents.

One agent took out his weapon, but it has not been confirmed if he fired or not. The airboats were introduced in early May of this year.
