TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - More than two years after it happened, federal investigators are telling more about the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

Investigators would not clarify exactly who shot Terry.  However, they say that border bandits shot at Terry and his team.  The bandits had been hunting killed him in a firefight.

Authorities indicted four men for the murder in November 2011, but kept the indictments sealed while they hunted the men.

Now they have unsealed the indictment and posted a total of a million dollar reward in hopes that someone in the U.S. or Mexico will turn the men into authorities.

The family of Terry issued the following statemnt:

It has been a difficult 18 months for the family since Brian Terry was murdered in December of 2010 and today's announcement provides hope that justice will eventually be served," said Robert Heyer, Chairman of the Brian Terry Foundation and cousin to Brian Terry.  "The Terry family would like to thank U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy and her team of prosecutors along with the special agents of the FBI's Tucson Office and the Mexico City Legal Attaché who have continued to pursue leads in the murder case that ultimately led to the additional indictments of the four fugitive defendants.  The Terry family would also like to thank the government of Mexico for their assistance in the investigation.  It is the family's hope that the unsealing of details in the case, the identification of the four fugitives and the issuance of reward monies will lead to the eventual capture of all individuals responsible for the murder of Agent Terry.
