MEXICO CITY (AP) — The Mexican government says one of its citizens was shot and killed by U.S. Border Patrol agents on the border with Texas.

The Mexican Foreign Ministry on Monday did not identify the victim from Saturday’s cross-border shooting, or give details of the incident. It said it told the U.S. that the use of lethal force was unacceptable.

The Border Patrol has said that agents had opened fire along the Rio Grande border after being pelted by rocks and having a gunman point a weapon in their direction from the Mexican side of the river. The agency said it did not know if anyone else was hurt but said the Mexican government had been notified and was responding to the area. The FBI also was investigating.
