Hero border agent’s hat shows how close he was to being killed by Salvador Ramos

The off-duty Customs and Border Protection agent who killed Texas gunman Salvador Ramos was a hair’s width away from being shot in the head—as evident in a photo of the hero’s bullet-ripped hat.

Fox News reported that the agent — a member of CBP’s elite Border Patrol Tactical Unit, or BORTAC — was wearing a hat when he broke into Robb Elementary School, Fox News reported.

A photo obtained by Fox News shows a long wound with a net over a black-and-white cap as the bullet was touching his head.

The officer exchanged rounds with Ramos, who was intercepted inside the fourth class orbit, but the agent managed to kill the gunman before he could commit any more massacres.

The agents – part of the CBP’s Del Rio sector that covers Uvalde – were trained similarly to US special forces.

BORTAC agents are taught overseas to deal with terror threats and other chaos, such as riots at ICE detention facilities, NBC reported.
