Transcript for Border Patrol Death
From the tsa under fire to a border patrol agent under fire. He shot and killed a mother of five while she was in the driver's seat of her car and there are two very different accounts of what happened just before that shooting. Here's abc's reena ninan now. Reporter: A makeshift memorial to honor a mother of five who family and friends say shouldn't have died at the hands of a u.S. Border agent. I think we're all shocked. And we want answers. We just want justice, that's it. Reporter: There are varying accounts of how 32-year-old valle was killed in her car friday night during a confrontation with a plainclothes agent serving an arrest warrant to another individual in the neighborhood. She stops right here, backs up a little bit. You see the guy coming from -- walking from behind the car coming to the front and just shooting like 10, 12 bullets at her. Next thing you know, he gets to the car, opens the door and pulls out his badge like that. I'm like, whoa, that should have been the first thing. Reporter: Local police officials have a different story saying she drove into the agent for reasons that are still not clear. And literally ran our agent down. The agent actually was impacted, was hit by the vehicle and carried several hundred yards on the hood before fearing for his life. Reporter: And police say that's when he fired his gun at least five times according to witnesses killing her. The entire incident unnerving this california community. Yeah, I want justice. Yes, whoever shot my wife, that guy, whoever he is, he needs to get shot. Yeah, he needs to get justice served. You don't shoot an innocent person. Reporter: Police have gone house to house searching for eyewitnesses as part of this investigation. They are still awaiting an autopsy report. David? Reena ninan in our washington bureau tonight, reena, thank you.
