3 in custody after ICE agent shot near Hargill


HARGILL — Authorities detained three people after a federal agent suffered two gunshot wounds Tuesday in an early-morning attack in a remote corner of eastern Hidalgo County.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement Special Agent Kelton Harrison remained in stable condition at McAllen Medical Center about 4 p.m. Tuesday, about 12 hours after he suffered two gunshot wounds to the abdomen during an attack and chase near Hargill.

Harrison and at least one other agent were conducting surveillance in a brushy area outside Hargill along Farm-to-Market Road 493 about 3:30 a.m. Tuesday, when at least one person confronted the agent, with a firearm in tow........

“They could be witnesses, could be participants and that’s what we can say at this point,” he said. “We expect to make an arrest soon and things are developing very quickly.”

The crime scene stretched about four miles along FM 493, from the south side of Hargill to the intersection with Highway 186, where Harrison abandoned his unmarked unit.
