Breaking News on Fox, this morning:
“Early this morning Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents assigned to the Brian Terry Station were involved in a shooting near Naco, Ariz. Preliminary reports indicate one agent has died from his injuries and another sustained non-life threatening wounds. The injured agent has been airlifted to the hospital. Names are being withheld pending notification of next of kin. More updates will follow as appropriate. The incident investigation is being led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office.”
The Brian Terry Station is of course named after the agent whose murder abruptly ended the Obama regime’s reckless and deadly Operation Fast and Furious because Fast and Furious weapons were found at the scene.
Time will tell if the guns from this crime will be linked back to Fast and Furious.
“According to investigations, ‘El Diego’ forms the link between this massacre and Fast and Furious,” an anchor read on air in Spanish Sunday evening, referring to two different mass killings drug cartel operatives used Fast and Furious weapons to conduct as Univision reported.
“When he [El Diego] was captured in Chihuahua in the summer of 2011, he was found with weapons that the American government had allowed to enter Mexico,” the anchor added. [...]
Mexican authorities have alleged El Diego is responsible for the murders of at least 1,500 people in Juarez and Chihuaha City, Mexico, according to the El Paso Times.
Via Twitchy, we find Univision taking the lead on this story by asking the obvious question American News Agencies dare not ask:
Can this morning’s deadly shooting that killed one Border Patrol agent and injured another near Naco, Arizona, be tied to Fast and Furious weapons?
That’s what Univision journalist Mariana Atencio is wondering. She also suggested the political implications could be “catastrophic” for President Obama.

Via Fox News, Issa weighs in:
Rep. Darrell Issa , R-Calif., released a statement calling an investigation into the shooting and cautioned about drawing conclusions before “relevant facts are known.”
“This shooting is a tragic reminder of the dangers the brave men and women who guard our borders face every day,” Issa’s statement read.
Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, called the fallen agent a fallen hero.
