Bisbee, Ariz. (KGUN9-TV) - Residents are rattled following the death of border patrol agent, Nick Ivie, Tuesday.
"You get goosebumps, you cry [and] you get upset because he has two little children and a beautiful young wife, " said Bisbee resident Connie Finck.
Finck went to church with Agent Ivie and his family. She says she saw the 30-year-old last Sunday.
"He conducted on Sunday and wore his testimony and it was really sweet. So to think he's gone today is really hard," said Finck.
Dorthy Churchman works in Bisbee and lives right on the border.
"We feel so protected by these young men that come by our house. Even in the middle of the night you can see their headlights coming up and own--patrolling," said Churchman.
U.S. Customs and Border Protections issued a statement by Deputy David V. Aguilar:
"Our thoughts and prayers are with Agent Ivie's family and friends in this difficult time."
Churchman told KGUN9 things like this don't happen in Bisbee, "I hope Bisbee can recover from this. This is a real tragedy."
