A Mexican law enforcement helicopter crossed into the United States early Thursday and fired on two US Border Patrol agents.

Andy Adame, a spokesperson for US Border Patrol, said in a statement issued soon afterward that the incident had indeed occurred and that the two government agents targeted were not injured.

The incident occurred early Thursday around 100 yards north of the US/Mexico border, Adame said, around eight miles southwest of the Village of San Miguel on the Tohono O'odham Indian Nation.

According to the spokesmen, the personnel on board the Mexican military chopper were in the midst of a drug interdiction operation at the time of the event. Art del Cueto, the president of the Tucson sector Border Patrol union, told local news network KVOA that Mexican officials contacted US authorities soon after and apologized for the incident. The event is now under investigation, Adame added.
