Authorities are still piecing together the events leading to the shooting death Tuesday of a US border patrol agent and the wounding of another in remote southern Arizona.
Nicholas Ivie, who had worked for the agency since 2008, was killed while patrolling along the US-Mexico border, according to Customs and Border Protection. The second agent, whose name was not disclosed, is expected to recover from his wounds. A third agent was unharmed in the shooting that happened shortly before 2 a.m. about five miles north of the border, authorities say.
Investigators had named no suspects as of late Tuesday, although Acting Cochise County Sheriff Rod Rothrock, whose office is probing the shooting with the FBI, said there may be "at least two suspects, maybe more."
