ABBOTSFORD, B.C. - Police in Abbotsford, B.C., say they managed to track a suspect in an international border-shooting incident to a local home early
Const. Ian MacDonald says the man is Canadian and has a criminal history, but his name won't be released until charges are announced.
MacDonald wouldn't say if a weapon was seized during the arrest, but says police believe they have the man involved in the border shooting.
The manhunt on the Canadian side of the border started Tuesday after one of two men fired on U.S. border agents just a few kilometres away from the
Huningdon crossing in the Fraser Valley east of Vancouver.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Michael Milne says agents on patrol encountered two men in camouflage and wearing backpacks in an area
known as a drug smuggling corridor.
MacDonald couldn't say what charges the suspect would face, or if he would face those charges in Canada or in the United States. (With files from AP)
