SUMAS, Wash. —

Police in Abbotsford, British Columbia, say a man suspected of shooting at U.S. Border Patrol agents Tuesday near Sumas was arrested at 4:30 a.m. Wednesday across the border at a residence in Abbotsford.

Police say in a statement he is a B.C. resident known to police.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Michael Milne said agents on patrol Tuesday encountered two men in camouflage and wearing backpacks in the Columbia Valley, a forested area known as a drug-smuggling corridor. One of the men fired at the agents and fled. He was the subject of a search by multiple agencies on both sides of the border until his arrest.

The other man was arrested Tuesday and is making his first court appearance at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday in federal court in Seattle.
