TUCSON, ARIZONA (Worthy News)– A Mexican military helicopter fired upon U.S. Border Patrol agents in Arizona on Thursday morning during a drug operation before returning to Mexico, according to officials.

The incident took place on the Tohono O'Odham Nation in Arizona. The chopper fired upon border agents but missed them, before returning to Mexico. Mexican authorities contacted the U.S. and apologized for the incident, according to KVOA-TV.

"Early this morning, a Mexican law enforcement helicopter crossed approximately 100 yards north into Arizona nearly 8 miles southwest of the Village of San Miguel on the Tohono O'odham Indian Nation while on a drug interdiction operation near the border," U.S. Border Patrol Spokesman, Andy Adame said.

"Two shots were fired from the helicopter but no injuries or damage to US property were reported. The incident is currently under investigation."
