Summary: Enforcement Officer Benjamin Stone was shot and killed near Brownsville, Texas, as he and two other officers patrolling an area on the shores of the Rio Grande River known as "Smuggler's Bend."

Mexican police officers arrested seven men and Officer Stone's service weapon within four hours while officers in the United States arrested the two men who owned the house used by the smugglers. One of the men arrested by Mexican authorities signed a confession stating he shot Officer Stone.
