Mexico Detains Two In Connection With Border Agent’s Death

MEXICO CITY (October 4, 2012)--Federal police in Mexico have arrested two men who may be connected with the shooting death of a U.S. Border Patrol agent this week just north of the Mexico/Arizona border, a Mexican law-enforcement official said Thursday.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release the information, said it remained unclear if there was strong evidence linking the men to the shooting of Agent Nicholas Ivie.

Another agent was wounded in the attack.

Ivie and two other agents were fired on in a rugged hilly area about five miles north of the border as they responded to an alarm that was triggered on one of the sensors that the government has installed along the border.
