Visitation Sunday, funeral Monday for border agent


SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. (AP) - Family and friends are gathering in Sierra Vista for the funeral for U.S. Border Patrol agent Nicholas Ivie.

A visitation with family is to be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday at the Hatfield Funeral Home and is open for all who wish to pay their respects.

The funeral is set for at 10 a.m. Monday at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints meetinghouse at 2100 Yaqui Street.

Ivie was shot to death early Tuesday near the Mexican border as three agents responded to an alarm that was triggered by a sensor aimed at detecting smugglers and others entering the U.S. illegally. A second agent was wounded.

The FBI says it appears Ivie was shot by fellow agents in a case of friendly fire.
