The U.S. Border Patrol agent killed near Naco, Ariz., Tuesday morning has been identified as Nicholas Ivie, 30. The other agent is listed in serious condition. The officers were ambushed near Bisbee
Authorities said Ivie and two other agents were on foot at about 1:30 a.m. about seven miles east of Bisbee responding to a ground sensor that had triggered.
The agents reported over the radio that they had come under fire as they were following a trail into the area, said Carol Capas, a spokeswoman with the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office. Earlier reports said they were on horseback.
When deputies arrived, one of the agents had died and another suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries, she said. Source
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Nicholas Ivie and the other agent. Agent Ivie, who was assigned to the Bryan A. Terry Border Patrol Station, is survived by his wife and children. Of course, the right wing is going to politicize this officer’s death. That is shameful.
