Eagle Pass Police Chief Antonio Castaneda tells the San Antonio Express-News that agent Alejandro Acevedo died Monday night at an Eagle Pass hospital of multiple bullet wounds.

Omar Olivares died earlier after the Monday afternoon shootout at Acevedo's flat at the Azteca Apartments. Olivares was a 28-year-old cousin to Acevedo's wife.

Castaneda says tension had been growing between Olivares and his 29-year-old host over the length of the guest's stay. The chief says officers found two of Acevedo's children hiding in a closet, uninjured. Acevedo's wife and eldest child were not home.
