    SAN ANTONIO (AP) - U.S. Border Patrol agents opened fire Saturday along the Rio Grande on the Texas-Mexico border after being pelted by rocks and having a gunman point a weapon in their direction on the Mexican side of the river, an agency spokesman said.
    Spokesman Henry Mendiola said no Border Patrol agents were injured in the incident Saturday near Brownsville. He did not know if anyone else was hurt. He said the Mexican government had been notified and was responding to the area. The FBI also was investigating.
    The Border Patrol released little details about the morning gunfire, including what the suspects were doing on the river.
    Mendiola said several people had been taken into custody but that he could not provide details about the suspects or charges they face.

    Eric Holder will try to indict them on Monday.
