5:38 pm
investigation will only call it a possible assault. what we do know is that agent martinez late saturday night was searching a culvert area along the interstate, about 30 miles from the mexican border, as part of his regular duties. what happened after that is unclear. but he, along with a second agent who arrived later, ended up being rushed to the hospital with head injuries and other broken bones. the second agent was released from the hospital, but we don't know his name, his condition, or whether he's spoken to investigators. we only know that he had eight years of experience. yesterday we also visited van horn. this is the town where those agents were first taken for treatment. it's about 12 miles from where this incident took place. everyone there seems to have heard a rumor or have a theory about what actually happened, but nobody knows for sure. one person told me that

(steve) despite those hickups at amazon today... things are looking good for the company's founder-- jeff bezos. according to bloomberg... he is now worth 100-billion dollars. bezos passed the 12-digit milestone today... thanks to a rise in amazon stock. it climbed after reports showed online shopping for thanksgiving and black friday jumping 18-percent over last year. bezos owns nearly 80-million shares of amazon stock... earning him two-point-four billion dollars on friday alone. it is believe that bill gates is the only other person to have reached that number. ( vicki ) a worst nightmare came true for one retailer after its website crashed on black friday. this happened to lowe's this morning. the company says it had a temporary outage. the website came back up around 8 this morning. lowe's is not the first retailer to have its site crash during one of the
5:50 pm
busiest shopping days of the year. target's website went down on cyber monday two years ago. and last year, the macy's website crashed on black friday. ( vicki ) j-c penney has changed its holiday coupon policy which has caused lots of confusion for customers. the retailer usually hands out coupons at the door on thanksgiving and black friday. these coupons have discounts up to five hundred bucks. but they can only be used ááafter black friday sales. this year...no coupons were handed today. instead-- they were handed out yesterday and again tomorrow. j-c penney says it changed this because it started having deals on thanksgiving through black friday.
