Mr. La Madrid had fled police in the Arizona border city of Douglas in a truck and drove to the border with Mexico. He was climbing a ladder and trying to cross the border, and another man atop the wall began throwing rocks at the pursuing agent, Miss Capas said.
Mr. La Madrid was shot three times and died later that day at a local hospital. The man on the wall got away.
