2) Border Patrol Agent Ivie killed Tuesday morning-October 2, 2012
3) Office involved shooting same night of Ivie death-October 2, 2012

The former Cochise County sheriff had been traveling at 62 mph along a dirt and gravel road in northern Arizona when he lost control of his vehicle and died.

A report released Monday by the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office says the black box in Larry Dever’s vehicle also shows that the seat belt was unbuckled.

Dever was on his way to meet family members for a camping and hunting trip at White Horse Lake on Sept. 18 when his pickup rolled.

The U.S. Forest Service road he had been driving on near Williams has no speed limit. Under state law, motorists are to drive at a speed that’s reasonable and prudent on Forest Service roads without posted limits.

The medical examiner’s office says his death was accidental and caused by multiple injuries.


Two U.S. Border Patrol agents were shot, one fatally, Tuesday morning in an area in south Arizona known as a major drug-smuggling corridor, authorities said.

Border Patrol identified the slain agent as 30-year-old Nicolas Ivie.

The shooting occurred at the Brian Terry Station near Naco, Ariz., which is just south of Tucson. The station was named after an agent who was killed in the line of duty in December 2010. The area is considered a remote part of the state and sources tell Fox News that the shooting occurred at 1:50 a.m. local time and about 8 miles from the border.


Authorities say a man who fled from southern Arizona police officers is in custody and being treated for a gunshot wound.

The officer-involved shooting took place Tuesday night in the Naco area near the U.S.-Mexico line. Earlier Tuesday, a Border Patrol agent was shot to death and another wounded in the same area.

Cochise County Sheriff's spokeswoman Carol Capas says the situation began when Bisbee Police attempted to pull over a man riding a motorcycle on Naco Highway.

Police say the man fired at officers, who fired back. The man then fled the area on foot.

Capas says authorities later received a call about an injured man at a Douglas home. Bisbee police identified the man as the motorcyclist.
The man is being hospitalized to treat a gunshot wound.


Mexican troops have arrested two suspects in the killing of a U.S. Border Patrol agent and the wounding of a second officer in Arizona, Mexican security officials said on Wednesday. he two suspects were detained in a Mexican military operation in the city of Agua Prieta, in Mexico's northern Sonora state, a few miles from the spot where Nicholas Ivie was shot dead early on Tuesday while responding to a tripped ground sensor, a Mexican Army officer, who declined to be named.


A law enforcement official confirmed to CBS News that investigators are looking into friendly fire as a possible scenario in Arizona Border Agent Nick Ivie's death.

No further information was immediately available.

Ivie was killed early Tuesday morning in the desert in Cochise County near Naco.

Last night, Mexican authorities across the border in Naco, Sonora, said they arrested two people in connection with the shootings.

As of now, the FBI will not confirm the arrests took place.
