MCALLEN, Texas (AP) Testimony enters its third day in the federal trial of a South Texas man and his son accused of shooting a federal agent.

A federal jury hears more evidence Wednesday in McAllen in the trial of Pedro Alvarado and son Arnoldo Alvarado, both accused of wounding Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent Kelton Harrison.

That's after Harrison testified about the night he was shot while maintaining surveillance on a man and his son

Harrison testified how early on July 3, 2012, two vehicles chased his near Hargill. He said shots from the vehicles wounded him before he veered into a field and fled for his life.

Prosecutors say the Alvarados were involved in drug trafficking, but the defense contends they were suspicious of Harrison's vehicle and acted out of self-defense.
