Family: Border Patrol agent died doing what he loved
Investigators look at possibility of 'friendly fire'
Ivie, at 19, served a two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Mexico City, where he learned Spanish and "developed a great love for the Mexican people," Goates said.
Chris and Rick Ivie said the family hasn't been told exactly what happened early Tuesday morning when their brother was killed. Information about possible friendly fire had not been released at the time of the press conference.
"We probably know less than you do, to be honest with you. We get most of our information from the news," Chris Ivie said.
The family, he said, has received comfort from the thoughts and prayers of friends and strangers and have not yet considered feeling anything for the individuals who took Nick's life.
"It is what it is. It won't bring Nick back," Chris Ivie said. "We know where Nick is right now. … We know we'll be able to see him again."
