Final Farewells to U.S. Border Patrol Agent killed on Duty
SIERRA VISTA, AZ - Friends and family say their final goodbyes to a U.S. Border Patrol agent who lost his life last week.
Border patrol says 30-year-old Nicholas Ivie was apparently killed by friendly fire.
The service took place at 8:30 Monday morning in Sierra Vista. It began with a special horse drawn procession by the border patrol. Ivie's funeral followed at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints meetinghouse at 10. Ivie is survived by his wife, two young daughters, parents and siblings.
The border patrol agent was fatally shot early Tuesday near the Mexican border.
Ivie and two other agents responded to an alarm triggered by a border sensor. A second agent was wounded, but will recover.The FBI says it appears the agents inadvertently opened fire on each other in a case of mistaken identity.
A second funeral for Ivie will be held Thursday morning at Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah.
