Mexican killed in Border Patrol clash to be buried



Published: Wed, June 9, 2010 @ 3:09 p.m.

SAN DIEGO (AP) — A Mexican man who died after being shocked by a stun gun during a fight with U.S. Border Patrol agents will be buried in San Diego.

Anastasio Hernandez will be buried Wednesday after a funeral service.

The 42-year-old father of five U.S.-born children came to the U.S. when he was 14.

San Diego police say Hernandez attacked agents May 28 as they were escorting him to a border gate to return him to Mexico.

Hernandez is the second person killed recently by Border Patrol agents.

An agent fatally shot a 15-year-old Mexican boy near El Paso, Texas, on Tuesday.

Mexico has condemned the use of force against both men.
