The U.S. government is fighting to keep details of how its own federal gun agents let Mexican drug cartels buy rifles in Arizona illegally out of an upcoming murder trial in which two men will be tried for the killing of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry who died after he ran into men carrying those same illegal guns.
In a court filing Monday, prosecutors are trying to keep some details about the guns found at the slain agent’s murder scene away from the jury.
Terry, 40, was part of the Border Patrol’s elite BORTAC unit. In December 2010, the group of agent’s was patrolling an area outside of Nogales, Ariz., named Mesquite Seep. They were looking for a rip-off crew comprised of men from Sinaloa who were roaming the border region in search of drug smugglers to rob. A firefight broke out. Terry was struck by gunfire and died at the scene. One of the rip-off crew members, Manuel Osorio-Arellanes, was wounded in the exchange.
