Police have yet to make any arrests in the incident, though their homicide unit has opened an investigation. Officials also have not determined how many shooters participated in the tragedy.
The incident comes as agents with the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) discovered a series of dead migrant bodies washed ashore in the Rio Grande. Lt. Chris Olivarez, a spokesperson with DPS, said two bodies were pulled from the river on July 1, one on July 2 and another on July 3. The remains have not yet been identified.
“In the past 48 hours, the Texas Department of Public Safety Tactical Marine Unit (TMU) recovered 4 deceased bodies including an infant from the Rio Grande River in Eagle Pass,” Olivarez tweeted Monday afternoon.
