San Diego police are investigating the Christmas Eve death of a 40-year-old man during a struggle with border agents at the San Ysidro crossing.
The man, whose name was not disclosed, entered the United States from Mexico through the pedestrian walkway about 7 p.m., according to homicide Lt. Paul Rorrison.
During a computer check, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents found that he had an outstanding felony warrant and should be considered armed and dangerous. Officers took him to a security office, where they seized an undisclosed amount of heroin, according to a statement from CBP.
Agents attempted to arrest the man, who was not handcuffed, but he jumped over a counter and attacked two officers, the statement said.
