An American citizen was shot and killed by a Honduran border patrol near the town of Cayaguanca when he and another person fled when asked for identification, a Honduran military spokesman said. The other person apparently escaped. In Washington, State Department spokesman Peter Martinez identified the dead man as Robert Joseph Reed, 43, of New York state. Martinez said that Reed was not a U.S. government employee, and it has not been determined why he was in Honduras.
