A Tamaulipas shootout was the point of origin, of a bullet travelling across the Mexico/U.S. border and hitting a Texas State Trooper.

Lt. Johnny Hernandez of the Texas Department of Public Safety says the trooper suffered a leg wound.
The state trooper was hit about 1 p.m. Friday while on foot patrol with the Border Patrol agent in Fronton, on the border about 105 miles upstream from Brownsville. A U.S. Customs and Border Protection statement says the federal agent also was hit but was protected by body armor.

The trooper, whose identity hasn't been released, was in stable condition at a McAllen hospital.
