(CNN) — U.S. Border Patrol agents fired gunshots into Mexico over the weekend after being attacked during a marijuana seizure in Mission, Texas, the agency told CNN on Monday.
The incident between border patrol agents and alleged drug traffickers took place around 7:40 a.m. Saturday, Border Patrol spokeswoman Rosalinda Huey said.
“Our agents were being fired upon and they did respond with fire back into Mexico,” she said. “I don’t have the number of how many people were involved. But none of our agents were injured.”
Agents seized over 1,000 pounds of marijuana during the incident, according to Huey. The incident is under investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the FBI and the Mexican government, Huey said.
“At this point we don’t know what cartel it’s tied to or if it’s just an unaffiliated source. We’re not attributing it to anybody right now,” she said.
Although attacks against border patrol agents are not uncommon, assaults against agents have decreased in the last fiscal year, she said.
Mission is a small border town in the Rio Grande Valley near McAllen, Texas.
Border patrol agents this year have seized more than 800,000 pounds of marijuana in this area, Huey said.
In June, a border patrol agent in El Paso, Texas, fired into Mexico killing a 15-year-old from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Surveillance video of the incident showed the teen throwing rocks at the agent before being shot.
This just in: Marc Emery has been sentenced to 5 years in jail minus time served. The Judge in the case has recomended Marc be transfered back to Canada as soon as the Canadian government requests it.

Sentenced to five years behind bars, Canada’s Prince of Pot Marc Emery was led off to an American penitentiary Friday repenting his seed-selling sins and professing love for his wife.
“I love you Jodie!” he mouthed silently to her as he was led away.
There may be a place for and time for a debate over the legalization of marijuana the judge told him, but this is not the time or the place — marijuana is illegal.
In a beige prisoner’s jumpsuit, Emery sat throughout the 15-minute hearing with his hands folded under his chin.
His wife Jodie Emery sat stoically the public gallery with about 40 supporters, press and undercover law-enforcement officers.
Seeds traced to grow houses in every region of the U.S. were linked to Emery according to the prosecution, and the original DEA press release called Emery one of the “most wanted international drug trafficking organizational targets — one of only 46 in the world and the only one from Canada.”
Judge Ricardo Martinez, of the western Washington district court, told the 52-year-old Vancouver businessman that he had grown up along the Canadian border and was saddened by what illegal drugs have done to both countries.
“I regret the example we set,” Emery told him, “and I won’t be doing that again.
“I’d like to point out though that it made it sound like I’m a bad guy . . . but I had very good intentions and wanted to be considered a proper participant in our society. I do believe that these prohibition laws create a lot of problems and create organized crime.”
It was a sad emotional end to a 30-year public career by the staunch libertarian most Canadians considered a benign and charismatic political prankster.
The U.S. prosecutors said he was the “largest [pot seed] distributor in North America and at least the largest into the United States . . . .no doubt he sold millions of marijuana seeds that produced millions of marijuana plants in the U.S.”
Outside the federal courthouse, a small group protested his sentence.
