A Canadian border guard is still recovering after being shot at the Peach Arch crossing north of Blaine, Washington. The suspect shot himself at the scene.
The shooting happened Tuesday afternoon when a White Ford Econovan with Washington State plates pulled up to the Peace Arch Border Crossing. In very short order, the female Canada Border Services Agency officer was shot in the neck and the driver of the van, a lone male, committed suicide.
