Reported Douglas border violence brings up security concerns

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Another night of violence in Mexico, just south of the border with Douglas, brought up issues of border security today.     

Mexican media reported one man was hospitalized and another was arrested after a high speed chase with federal police in Agua Prieta, Mexico Monday night.

Authorities pursued a white Jeep Cherokee with Arizona plates and said the suspects shot at officers before eventually crashing into a home.

This was the second night in the past few days that police said shots were heard across the border. This latest incident did not appear to be related to Saturday night's deadly drug cartel shooting.
