This isn’t usually the border with reported shootings. A Canadian border officer was wounded in her booth Tuesday afternoon by a motorist traveling from Blaine, Wash. The motorist was found dead at the scene, from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound. Canadian officials closed the border crossing immediately after the shootings, and Royal Canadian Mounted Police are investigating the incident. About 60 vehicles were stranded on the Canadian side of the border, and officials urged motorists to use a different crossing. The injured border patrol agent was airlifted to a hospital, but no other details were known about her condition.
