TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Funeral services for fallen Border Patrol Agent Nicholas Ivie are set for Monday morning in Sierra Vista.

The service will begin at 10 a.m. at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints' main location in Sierra Vista.

It will be broadcast on closed-circuit TV to several other meeting locations.

Ivie died while on duty near Bisbee last Tuesday morning.

The head of the Border Patrol Agents union tells the Associated Press that it appears Ivie opened fire on two fellow agents thinking they were armed smugglers.

Ivie was killed when they returned fire.

Apparently two groups of agents had gone to check on a ground sensor that had gone off.

We will have full coverage of Agent Ivie's funeral service Monday morning, followed by comments from his family.

The Ivie family plans to hold a news conference after the services.
