A Mexican soldier said that a U.S. citizen attacked an army convoy and was killed when troops shot him in self-defense outside the resort city of Acapulco, a police official said. The man's father said Monday that he found it hard to believe.

An army lieutenant told police that Joseph Proctor opened fire on a military convoy with an AR-15 rifle, forcing the soldiers to shoot back, said Domingo Olea, a police investigator in the western state of Guerrero, where Acapulco is located.

A Defense Department official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly about the case, said the army was investigating the lieutenant's claim. The official said Proctor might have been a passenger in the car, although nobody else was found with him at the scene.

Not sure if this is anything really big. It could be, but then again, it could not be.

He could of been a Mexican drug cartel member possibly. Or he could of just been caught in the line of fire. Im not sure if I trust the soldiers story. The story is still pretty new, so more details will be out later.

If there are US citizens going down to Mexico to shoot up the place, I could see this getting pretty ugly real fast.
