US NSC Internal Memo #68304-12
Negotiations were successful. Pedro Hernandez has voluntarily given himself up for arrest, and is cooperating with police. He has provided information that could be vital to the Mexican intelligence services. Specifically, Pedro has revealed that his father is aware of his impending arrest and has gone into hiding in Mexico. He has revealed his father's location to the FBI and Mexican authorities have acted upon that intelligence though information sharing agreements previously agreed to between the US and Mexico. Mexican authorities attempted to arrest Santiago Hernandez, however, he retaliated by force and was killed in the ensuing gunfight. The freed hostages are currently being treated for dehydration. The Border Patrol agent is currently being airlifted to hospital for further medical treatment, and while he has suffered bullet wounds in his shoulder and arm, he is expected to survive.
