Border Patrol Agent Nick Ivie thought he was tracking down Mexican drug smugglers in October 2012 when a shootout unfolded.

Ivie was fatally shot by a fellow officer who believed Ivie was a criminal.

For the first time, his wife, Christy Ivie, spoke out about the shooting, CBS 5 reports.

“There were four agents there. They told me there had been a shooting and he had been shot and killed. And it was unbelievable. I just remember saying, ‘No, no!’ over again.”

Then Ivie discovered the shooting was from friendly fire.

“I think it’s harder because I don’t have someone to be angry at. I don’t have someone to blame. It wasn’t a bad guy that he was up against. So that’s hard,” Ivie said.
