A U.S. Border Patrol agent who fatally shot a woman in Chula Vista last month was suspended four times for misconduct during a nearly four-year stint as an Imperial County sheriff’s deputy and quit before being fired, court documents show.

The attorney for the woman’s family filed a wrongful death claim Friday with the Border Patrol seeking damages and raised questions about agent Justin Tackett’s departure from his sheriff’s job.

The name of the Border Patrol agent alleged to have shot Valeria Munique Tachiquin-Alvarado is Justin Tackett.

Do you know if the Border Patrol has rules for deadly force? Customs & Border Protection’s web site doesn’t have any.
