The agent was “an elite BORTAC Border Patrol agent,” according to Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin, who confirmed the report.

At least 20 people were killed in the shooting, according to reports.

Many Democrats immediately seized on the tragedy, calling for new gun control legislation while others used it to attack Republicans.
