Mexico to extradite accused gunman to U.S. for 'Fast and Furious' slaying

Mexico’s government said on Thursday it planned to extradite the man accused of pulling the trigger in the 2010 killing of a U.S. Border Patrol agent in a case tied to the U.S. government’s ill-fated “Fast and Furious” gun-running sting. Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes was arrested on Wednesday on the border of the northern Mexican states of Sinaloa and Chihuahua for the shooting of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, according to the U.S. Marshal for Arizona. Identifying the suspect only as Heraclio “N”, the Mexican attorney general’s office said in a statement that following his capture by Mexican marines, steps were underway to initiate the process of his extradition to the United States.
