The U.S. Border Patrol's version of the fatal shooting of Valeria Alvarado in San Diego, California, has been contradicted by witnesses (video below).
Authorities claimed that a plainclothes agent shot Alvarado after she hit him with her car, on Friday, while he was serving a warrant.
Border Patrol Deputy Chief Rodney Scott told KNSD-TV: “The suspect was armed with a vehicle, and literally ran our agent down. He was carried several hundred yards before he discharged his weapon through the windshield of the vehicle.”
However, witnesss Ayanna Evans told XETV-TV: The plainclothes agent "was walking towards the car and the car was moving back slowly. He pulled his arm up and I heard it, 'pop pop pop.'"
Witness Ashley Guilbeau, told KMFB-TV that the plainclothes agent walked toward the front of the car shooting “about 12 times” without identifying himself: "Without her even able to say a word, I didn’t hear anything, [he] just came across and just shot at the windshield many times."
