SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. (AP) — Nearly 100 people gathered in Naco for a candlelight vigil for a fallen Border Patrol agent.
Family members, law enforcement officials and local residents attended Thursday night's event for 30-year-old Nicholas Ivie, who was fatally shot Tuesday near the Arizona-Mexico border.
The Associated Press said the organizer of the vigil was Rev. Seth Polley, who's the vicar of St. John's Episcopal Church in Bisbee.
Father Samuel Jandeh, vicar of St. Michael's Catholic Parish in Naco, says Ivie's death was more of a sacrifice than an ordinary death.
He says law enforcement officials expose themselves to danger and they deserve appreciation for it.
