“A man was killed during a car chase in which he allegedly shot at Border Patrol agents, who returned fire. While initially CBP reported that the man died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, later reports indicate that it is unclear whether the man died as a result of the exchange of fire, or from a self-inflicted wound.”
