Benito A. Gonzalez (3749)

5/31/2007: Gonzalez is said to have approached a lone US Border Patrol agent in a park-and-ride lot after the interception of a van-full of undocumented workers. According to the agent, Gonzalez provided a fictitious name, started a physical struggle, then went for the agent's gun. The agent was compelled to shoot him to death. Gonzalez had no criminal record, was unarmed, was unconnected with the intercepted van, and was mis-labelled an illegal in the first incident reports. His reported appearance and behavior here remains a mystery.
