Family and friends gathered in Sierra Vista on Monday for the funeral for U.S. Border Patrol agent Nicholas Ivie.
The funeral was held 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.
