Attorney for border patrol agent, who killed teenager, argues against retrial

In this March 21, 2018, file photo, Border Patrol agent Lonnie Swartz, left, makes his way to the U.S. District Court building in downtown Tucson. Swartz has never denied shooting 16-year-old Jose Antonio Elena Rodriguez in 2012, but said the teen was throwing rocks at him across the border. His attorneys have argued Swartz was acting in self-defense. (Ron Medvescek/Arizona Daily Star via AP, File)
