2 arrested after shots fired near U.S.-Quebec border

DERBY LINE, Vt. – Two people were in custody Monday and another was suspected of having fled to Canada after an incident in a Vermont town hugging the U.S.-Canada border.

A U.S. Border Patrol agent was questioning three people in Derby Line suspected of having crossed the border illegally, about 150 kilometres southeast of Montreal, at 2:15 a.m. when he was assaulted “to a point he feared for his life” and shot at the suspects twice, said Mark Henry of the U.S. Border Patrol.

“We have three people who were in the border area that we believe entered from Canada illegally,” Henry said.

One person was arrested and was being held in custody in Vermont and another in Canada, he said, not giving details about the suspects or what kind of charges they could face.

A third is thought to have fled to Canada. It wasn’t known whether this person was either armed or injured from the shots. The two in custody were not hit by the shots.

The RCMP confirmed they arrested one individual who had fled to Canada but another remained at large. They said the suspects were not Canadian.  From Canada.com
