A Border Patrol agent in Arizona was shot early Tuesday, authorities said.

Details were scant, but Customs and Border Protection, which oversees the Border Patrol, said the agent was “involved in a shooting incident” and was hit with gunfire.

The agency said “several subjects” who were in the area were taken into custody, while the agent was taken to a hospital.

The shooting happened south of Arivaca, which sits about 10 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border, just north of a section of federal lands.
