The feds are on the hunt for a suspect in the shooting of a U.S. Border Patrol agent who was found severely wounded on the side of a roadway in El Paso Sector after he was abducted.

A leaked document and a variety of sources indicate the name, date of birth, and two pictures of the suspect.

Sources working for Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reported that the man is believed to have been deported on three prior occasions, each time being permitted to leave the U.S. without legal consequences.

The man is also thought to have ties with the Juarez Cartel, in particular, its enforcement arm, La Linea, Breitbart Texas reported.

The suspect is also believed by sources to have connections with the Juarez Cartel, or its enforcement arm, La Linea.

A BOLO sent out to federal agents working along the border states:

(U) Sergio Ivan Quinonez-Venegas is wanted in connection with the kidnapping and assault of an off-duty Border Patrol agent that occurred on June 9, 2017.

(U) Quinonez’ date of birth is 01/25/1984 and has a possible criminal history of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Rumors have spread among Border Patrol agents in the absence of official information.

Some have said that the victim’ fingers were cut off. Some have alleged that four fingers were amputated. Others said two fingers were cut off at the first knuckle. This has not yet been confirmed, the only verified information of the agent’s wounds came from an official CBP statement that said the victim sustained “severe injuries” to the agent’s “head, chest, and hands.”
