The U.S. Border Patrol says one of its agents has been wounded in a shooting in southern Arizona near the U.S.-Mexico border.

A Border Patrol statement says the agent was taken to a hospital Tuesday morning for treatment but provided no information on the agent’s injuries or the circumstances of the shooting.

The statement says the shooting happened south of the community Arivaca at 4:30 a.m. and that several people referred to as “subjects” were taken into custody.

The statement says the FBI and the Office of Professional Responsibility of U.S. Customs and Border Protection are investigating.

Arivaca is southwest of Tucson and about 10 miles from the border.
