PHOENIX (AP) — Three illegal immigrants arrested near the scene of a shootout that left a Border Patrol agent dead have been cleared by federal authorities of involvement in the shooting.

Robbie Sherwood, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office in Arizona, says two of the immigrants pleaded guilty to an immigration violation Tuesday and the third is expected to do so Wednesday. They will be deported to Mexico.

Sherwood says in a written statement that there's no evidence tying the three to the Dec. 14 shooting.

The three immigrants from Mexico were arrested near the Arizona border city of Nogales the day after Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was shot.

Terry was waiting with other agents in a canyon 13 miles north of the border when a shootout with bandits erupted.
