U.S. Border Patrol agent Nicholas Ivie’s riderless horse with boots set backward in honor of the slain agent is seen during the funeral procession on Monday, Oct. 8, 2012, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Sierra Vista, Ariz. The head of the U.S. Border Patrol agents’ union says the agent was killed when he apparently opened fire on two colleagues thinking they were armed smugglers and was killed when they returned fire.
