Friends and family will gather next week to remember U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. He was killed while on duty in Arizona Tuesday night.
Terry's body arrived at Metro Airport on Saturday night. In a terrible turn of events, four motorcycle officers who were escorting Brian Terry's hearse collided early Saturday during a procession in Tucson, Arizona. One officer was hurt and had to be transported to the hospital.
“I’m going to miss his hugs he’d give me,” his mother, Josephine Terry, told Action News. “He would sit by me and hold my hand. He always told you he loved you no matter where he was at, always gave you a hug no matter where he’s at.”
Brian Terry, 40, grew up in Metro Detroit. He graduated from Flat Rock High School and went on to be a U.S. Marine. He later received an honorable discharge and began work as a realtor. But when that wasn’t enough, he followed his passion to law enforcement. For nearly seven years, Terry served as a police officer, first with the Ecorse Police Department and then with Lincoln Park.
Most recently, he was working for the U.S. Border Patrol in Arizona. The FBI said Terry was caught in the middle of a gun fight on Tuesday. He was gunned down by bandits along the U.S.-Mexico border.
