El Paso official says more migrants are arriving in Texas city every day.

Two brothers in Texas have been arrested after authorities say one of them opened fire on a group of migrants getting water near the U.S.-Mexico border, killing one man and shooting a woman in the stomach, according to court documents filed Thursday.

DPS said the victims were among a group of migrants standing alongside the road getting water when a truck with two men inside pulled over.

According to court documents, the group had taken cover as the truck first passed to avoid being detected but the truck then backed up.

Authorities located the truck by checking cameras and finding a vehicle matching the description given by the migrants, according to court records.

The number of migrants coming to the U.S.-Mexico border is approaching a record high.

CBS News correspondent Manuel Bojorquez reported last week that officials in El Paso are trying to move migrants sleeping outside a Greyhound bus station to shelters and motels. »
