The gunfired occurred on New Year's Day and adds to the total of shocking encounters as the US-Mexico border crisis continues to worsen.

Saturday's event happened near the city of Roma, Texas. The origin of the gunfire was across the Rio Grande River in Mexico. Both the FBI and Border Patrol are now investigating the case, a law enforcement source told Fox News.
