Police: Off-duty Border Patrol agent kills man

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT, MI (AP) -

Police say an off-duty U.S. Border Patrol agent from California has fatally shot a man in Detroit during a dispute that may have stemmed from a card game.

The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press report the shooting took place outside a home about 2 a.m. Monday on the city's east side.

Deputy Chief Rodney Johnson says an argument between the agent's cousin and another man moved outside the home and the other man brandished a gun from inside a vehicle. Johnson says the agent fired several shots at the other man, killing him.

Names of those involved weren't released Monday morning and no arrests were reported. Police didn't immediately say why the agent was in Detroit.
