Border Patrol agent remembered in Utah

October 12, 2012

Mourners on Thursday remembered the Border Patrol agent shot and killed last week near Bisbee at a second funeral. From Phoenix, KJZZ's Mark Brodie has more.

Nicholas Ivie had a funeral in Sierra Vista on Monday. Another service was held Thursday at Utah Valley University in Orem.

Family, friends and colleagues remembered Ivie as a loving family man who was committed to serving others. The Deputy Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection called Ivie a member of a family that toils on the border to protect the American way of life.

Ivie was shot to death last week just north of the Arizona-Mexico border. He and two other agents were responding to an alarm that had been tripped. A preliminary investigation by the FBI has found Ivie likely died as a result of friendly fire.
