DOJ report due out on gun-smuggling operation
Web Producer: Ina Ronquillo
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Family members of an Arizona U.S. Border Patrol agent killed in connection with a botched gun-smuggling operation said they won't have closure until someone is held accountable for his death.
Brian Terry's mother, sisters and cousin from the Detroit area are in Tucson this week for a dinner to raise money for a foundation set up in his honor. They also plan to be on hand Tuesday at Naco on the Mexico border when the Border Patrol station there is named after him.
Some of the guns purchased illegally with the government's knowledge were later found at crime scenes in Mexico and the U.S., including in December 2010 at the southern Arizona site where Terry was killed.
The Justice Department's inspector general is scheduled to be questioned Thursday before a House committee about his findings on the operation.
