A boarder patrol agent was shot and killed Tuesday in Arizona near the U.S.-Mexico boarder, the New York Times reported.

A second agent was also injured in the shooting when the two agents were on patrol near Naco, Ariz., CNN reported. The second agent sustained injuries that were not life threatening, according to a boarder patrol spokesman.

A third agent, who was not harmed, was also on the horse-mounted patrol when the shooting occurred, the New York Times reported.

The death of the agent is the 14th death among boarder patrol agents since 2008 and the third death this year according to the agency, CNN reported.

Authorities have not identified any suspects and it is not clear wether the agents returned fire, the New York Times reported.
