Pinal County Sheriff's Deputies, Arizona State and Federal Investigators are just now on the scene of an apparent double homicide near milepost 150 on Interstate 8, which is the same area that the U.S. Border Fire Report, ( www.usborderfirereport.com ) reported recently showing the same area as the Arizona Concerned Citizens set up watch posts to help detect illegal smugglers just east of Gila Bend Arizona. Attention Concerned Citizens
According to the Concerned Citizens they offered and alert authorities and the public to the dangerous area between Gila Bend and Casa Grande Arizona their efforts were to help observe and report the daily invasion across our southern border with Mexico.
This is not a Minuteman or extremist group sponsored event - just a call to action by a group of "Concerned Citizens".
Concerned Citizens group had just lift the area a few days earlier they say in view of this latest shootings they are ready to deploy again, to video tape and educate Americans about the real threat to National Security and our public safety.
The group is in support of Jan Brewer signing SB1070 and say they want to help educate the public. They say "It’s time to bring back the" Minuteman Type Lines"
The group pointed out that there are 30 miles of area in a straight line that they covered the last time around. They'll go back and do what they do best..... "DETERRENCE BY PRESENCE"
Their program operated for about 2 weeks.
The locations of deployment were the very area where these two killings took place. They established multiple base camps at major choke points.
According to Lt. Tamatha Villar of the Pinal County Sheriff's Office, the call came in late Sunday night. Villar said the man who called said he and a friend had been shot out in the desert.
This is the same general area where Deputy Louis Puroll was shot, allegedly by drug smugglers, more than a month ago. There was a delay for authorities to respond to the scene of the shooting. It is not clear why the delay, but when the sheriff spokesperson was asked Lt. Villar stated that the communications center lost contact when cell service apparently dropped out. Crews were sent out to try and locate the caller. Those searchers found the bodies of two men who had been shot to death. Detectives had to wait for daylight before they could begin their investigation.
Crime scene techs were just arriving on the scene at 9:30 a.m. This morning so details are quite limited.
Villar said that area is a "primary corridor for human and drug smuggling" and that unfortunately the deadly shooting is "not something that's completely unexpected given the volatility of the area right now."
