Service to be Held in AZ for Agent Killed in Shootout

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A public memorial service will be held in Tucson for a U.S. Border Patrol agent killed earlier this month in a shootout with border bandits.

The service for 40-year-old Agent Brian A. Terry will be held at 11 a.m. on Jan. 21 at Kino Stadium in Tucson.

Terry was waiting with three other agents in a remote area north of Nogales on Dec. 14 when a gun battle with the bandits began. Four suspects were arrested.

FBI spokeswoman Susan Herskovits declined to provide details of the investigation.

Bandits have long roamed border areas, robbing and sexually assaulting illegal immigrants as they cross into the country.

A memorial service for Terry was held Dec. 22 in his native Michigan.
