    Godspeed, agent. Prayers to the family.

    Bless his sacrifice, bless his family, honor his memory. He gave it all...for us.

    I'm working this story and here's what I have so far

    Border agents shot, 1 dead near border station named for Brian Terry

    Two Border Patrol agents were shot and one was killed Tuesday morning in southern Arizona near Naco, where the patrol station named in honor of slain agent Brian Terry was dedicated recently.

    The wounded agent was hit in the buttocks and ankle and a third agent was not hit. So far, no guns have been reportedly recovered. A Univision reporter is already asking whether any Fast & Furious guns might be linked to this.

    The FBI says the two border patrol agents most likely shot each other. The FBI is says "friendly fire" was likely to blame for the death of the agent. i love the way the FBI spins this as an "accidental" blue on blue. Accident, i don't think so; someone messed up big time.

    http://news.yahoo.com/fbi-strong-sig...081636733.html

    PHOENIX (AP) — Friendly fire likely was to blame in a shooting near the Arizona-Mexico line that killed one federal agent and wounded another, the FBI said, noting the investigation was still ongoing in the case that reignited the political debate over border security.
    .................................................. ...................................

    Federal investigators used ballistic testing to determine that the shootings likely resulted from friendly fire, According to the Cochise County Sheriff's Office, which is assisting the FBI in the probe.

    Jeffrey D. Self, commander of Customs and Border Protection's Joint Field Command-Arizona, said that despite the initial findings that the shootings appeared accidental, Ivie still "gave the ultimate sacrifice and died serving his country."

    "The fact is the work of the Border Patrol is dangerous," Self said at a news conference in Tucson.

    While federal authorities declined to offer details of the shooting, George McCubbin, president of the National Border Patrol Council, said all three agents fired their weapons.

    McCubbin told The Arizona Republic that the agents had split up as they investigated the sensor alarm. "Coming in from different angles, that is more than likely how it ended up happening," he said.

    When the final report comes out it will show that loss of control of a M6 on full auto caused the event - just an unfortunate accident.
