RGV (KFXV) — A state and federal agent are now recovering after being shot by bullets after an alleged confrontation on the Mexican side of the border.

The officer identified as Danny Shaw has worked with the Department of Public Security for eight years. He was transported to McAllen Medical Center after being shot in the pelvis.

A Border Patrol agent, near the area was also shot, but the bullet to his chest was stopped by a bulletproof vest. Authorities have confirmed the shots were fired from the other side of the border.

Multiple agencies are investigating to see if the shots were intentional or if the two agents were simply caught in the crossfire.
