The family of murdered Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry wants justice, and that may include suing the federal government.

“If the evidence shows Brian’s death was proximately caused by the negligence of the federal government, there may be a cause of action,” said Terry family attorney Paul Charlton.

Terry was killed in December 2010 at the hands of an illegal immigrant working for the Sinaloa Cartel while patrolling an area near Tucson known as Rio Rico.

Officials traced the gun found at the scene to Operation Fast and Furious, a weapons trafficking program run by the U.S. Department of Justice and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that let guns travel south of the border.
