BLAINE, Wash. -- A female Canadian border agent was shot in the neck by a gunman at the Peace Arch border crossing Tuesday afternoon, the Canada Border Services Agency confirmed to Canada's CTV.

There is no word on the condition of the border agent. She's being airlifted to Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, B.C.

Witnesses report the gunman then turned the gun on himself. Witnesses also report to CTV the gunman was driving a white van with Washington license plates.

The shooting happened just after 2 p.m. on the Canadian side of the border where British Columbia's Highway 99 meets Washington's I-5. That crossing is closed as police investigate and people will need to divert to the crossing along Washington's SR-543.
