Juvenile suspect and smuggling case arrested
BROWNSVILLE, TEXAS (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — The driver involved in the October high speed chase that ended with a deadly shooting from a DPS helicopter is now behind bars.
Border patrol says they captured the juvenile, a Mexican national, near Sullivan City this morning after he led them on a car and foot chase.
The suspect is now in custody at the Hidalgo County Sherriff’s Department.
As you may recall-there were 10 people inside of the vehicle.
Authorities say two undocumented Guatemalan immigrants were killed while hiding under a trap in back of the suspected smuggling truck.
