Texas: Border Patrol Agent Rogelio Martinez appears to have been ambushed and killed by a group of illegal aliens who he and his partner were tracking near the border with Mexico.  Local agents report that he was struck in the head multiple times with a rock or rocks.  His unidentified colleague remains in serious condition.  -GEG​

The border agent who was killed Sunday while patrolling in Texas near the U.S.-Mexico border was beaten to death by assailants who used rocks to crush his skull, an official with knowledge of the situation told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Rogelio Martinez and his partner were working in the Big Bend sector when they reported they had been injured and were in need of assistance, according to Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

Responding agents transported both agents to a local hospital, where Martinez passed away from his injuries. His partner, whose name has not been released by CBP, remains hospitalized in serious condition.

In a statement released Sunday, CBP confirmed Martinez’s death but did not provide details about the circumstances leading to the incident. Shortly after CBP’s confirmation, Breitbart Texas reported that representatives of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) were told by local border agents that illegal immigrants attacked Martinez and his partner.

 “What we know is that Border Patrol Agent Rogelio Martinez appears to have been ambushed by a group of illegal aliens whom he was tracking,” Brandon Judd, president of the NBPC, told Breitbart Texas. “Our agents’ reports from the ground say that he was struck in the head multiple times with a rock or rocks.”

That account was independently confirmed by a CBP official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the ongoing investigation.

“They were beaten with rocks,” the official told TheDCNF. “As in rock in hand and smashing it into their heads. They were beaten.”

CBP did not provide further details about Martinez’s death when reached for comment. The FBI’s El Paso office is leading the investigation, a CBP spokesperson said.
