Woman killed by Border Patrol agent fled, police say

Police in suburban San Diego say a woman who was fatally shot by a Border Patrol agent last week left an apartment after authorities came to arrest someone else, and she struck the agent with her car at least twice as she fled.

Chula Vista police gave their first account Tuesday of how the victim and the Border Patrol agent involved in Friday's shooting were linked.

Police say 32-year-old Valeria Munique Alvarado struck the agent at least once with her car, when another agent reached through her window to try to remove the keys. They say she struck the agent again and drove more than 200 yards with him on the hood. According to witnesses, the car reached speeds of about 25 mph.

Police say the agent fired multiple rounds through the windshield.
