PHOENIX (AP) — The Latest on the acquittal of a Border Patrol agent in Mexican teen’s death (all times local):
Scores of people have protested in Tucson after a jury in Arizona acquitted a Border Patrol agent of manslaughter in the cross-border shooting death of a Mexican teen six years ago, shutting down an intersection.
One sign protesters carried says, “Abolish Border Patrol.” Another reads “No justice, no peace.”
Jurors found Lonnie Swartz not guilty of involuntary manslaughter Wednesday. It was his second trial after another jury acquitted him of second-degree murder and deadlocked on the manslaughter charge earlier this year.
