Napolitano to visit family of slain Border Patrol agent

Source: CNN

(CNN) -- The head of Homeland Security travels to Arizona Friday, a day after Mexican authorities questioned two men in a shooting that killed a U.S. Border Patrol agent and wounded another near the U.S.-Mexican border.

The Mexican army handed the two over to local authorities in Sonora, having detained them near the American border, the Mexican attorney general's office said Thursday. The two were in possession of drugs and guns when they were detained, added the source.

Local authorities are investigating if the pair had anything to do with Tuesday's shooting near Naco, Arizona, where Border Patrol agents came under fire after responding to a sensor that had gone off nearby.

U.S. authorities have identified the agent killed as 30-year-old Nicholas Ivie. The Provo, Utah, native, who joined the Border Patrol in January 2008, is survived by his wife and two young children.

2. And it looks like Ivie may have been the first one to open fire.

If all this is true then I'm gonna be pissed at the Border Patrol for having let this story run out of control for so long. WTF was it about the two people who were handed over by the Mexican army as likely suspects?

3. Did he not make an effort to confirm who he was shooting at?

This story stinks.

Excerpt:
""I don't know what it was he saw or heard that triggered this whole event," McCubbin said. "Unfortunately it resulted in his death and another agent injured.""
