WASHINGTON (AP) A Marine fired his weapon while on duty along the U.S.-Mexico border in California and reported afterward that he had been attacked inside his vehicle by three people, officials said Friday

John Cornelio, a spokesman for U.S. Northern Command, which oversees the military's mission on the border, said the matter is under investigation. He confirmed that the Marine discharged his weapon but said he could not provide details until the investigation is completed.

Cornelio said the Marine was at a mobile surveillance camera site near El Centro, California, in the pre-dawn hours of May 29 when the incident took place. Cornelio said there were no reported injuries.

The Marine's name was not released.

1. Every single US agent out there needs to have a body camera locked to their chest and permanently on

while on duty.

2. Trump's going to get people killed at the border, which, no doubt, is the plan
