SUMAS, Wash. —
Dozens of officers were looking for a gunman at the U.S-Canadian border Tuesday night.
Police say the man opened fire on agents east of the crossing at Sumas shortly before 9:30 a.m.
The shooting happened after two border agents confronted two people who were trying to cross a rural part of the border east of Sumas. The pair wore camouflage and carried backpacks.
One man shot at officers and then ran into the woods. The other person was taken into custody by the U.S. Border Patrol near Reese Hill and Heady roads.
"It's just not too surprising,” said Joe Schuhow of Sumas.”There's a lot of drug problems in this whole area."
Officers closed roads near the search scene. The border crossing at Sumas was not affected.
No injuries were reported.
