On a January night in the Arizona desert, a U.S. Border Patrol agent pursued and killed an illegal immigrant named Gabriel Sanchez.
The border agency said Mr. Sanchez tried to grab the agent’s gun, prompting him to shoot. The lawyer representing the victim’s family said the circumstances of the shooting remain uncertain. “The only thing we have to speak for the deceased is physical evidence,” said Phoenix attorney Daniel Ortega.
The agency, whose ranks have expanded rapidly since the 1990s, faces mounting questions about the use of lethal force. A critical report last year by the Homeland Security Office of Inspector General suggests an urgent need to improve training, strengthen supervision and transform the culture of the Border Patrol.
An official at the Department of Homeland Security said Tuesday that it had addressed some of these concerns, and that more changes may occur.
