On Monday evening, a shootout responsible in U.S. Customs and Border Patrol was testified at the San Ysidro Port of Entry, which is located within the city of San Diego, north of the U.S.-Mexico border with Tijuana, as per the official reports.

The shooting transpired at around 7:30 p.m. at San Ysidro Port of Entry between the officers and a driver venturing to enter the United States.

The shooting took place when the driver who was driving a white pick-up truck broke to stand for inspection.

To aid the Customs and Border Protection agents associated in the shooting, San Diego police officers were induced in and the northbound pedestrian and vehicle lanes at the port entry were shut down due to the incident for roughly 30 minutes.

It is reported that the westbound vehicle exit from the port of entry was closed by the officials to guard the scene on Monday evening.

The eastbound exit lanes majorly remain uninterrupted with minimal delays and the southbound vehicle and pedestrian lanes into Mexico, however, were not affected.

The CBP spokesperson continued to add further reports and updates concerning the problem, that will be provided by the San Diego Police Department which is the leading investigating agency into this shooting.

Other law enforcement agencies are investing in the matter with the cooperation of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

An internal review of the incident will also be carried out by the agency, in accordance with the CBP policy.
