FBI: Friendly fire likely in border shootings - CBS 5 - KPHO
PHOENIX (AP/CBS5) -
The fatal shooting of 30-year-old Border Patrol Agent Nicholas Ivie and the wounding of another agent early Tuesday morning five miles from the border was likely a case of friendly fire, the FBI announced Friday.

The FBI said preliminary evidence points to the two agents exchanging gunfire in the mistaken belief that each was being fired on by a hostile gunman.
