How could 2 men be shot to death when Janet Napolitano said border was more secured than ever?
Crime scene techs were just arriving on the scene at 9:30 a.m. so information was still quite limited.
According to Lt. Tamatha Villar of the Pinal County Sheriff's Office, the call came in late Sunday night. Villar said the man who called said he and a friend had been shot out in the desert.
This is the same general area where Deputy Louis Puroll was shot, allegedly by drug smugglers, more than a month ago.
The communications center lost when cell service apparently dropped out. Crews were sent out to try and locate the caller. Those searchers found the bodies of two men who had been shot to death. Detectives had to wait for daylight before they could begin their investigation.
Villar said that area is a "primary corridor for human and drug smuggling" and that unfortunately the deadly shooting is "not something that's completely unexpected given the volatility of the area right now."
