TUCSON -- Investigators believe that Border Patrol agents involved in a likely "friendly fire" shooting that killed one officer responded from different directions in a dark, rugged canyon and may have misinterpreted their colleagues' actions on approach, officials said Saturday. Three agents fired unknowingly at each other after they separately responded to a tripped sensor in a rugged canyon in southeastern Arizona, Cochise County Acting Sheriff Rod Rothrock told The Times on Saturday.

Following are the names of the crew and some passengers who died aboard a Northwest Airlines jet that crashed after takeoff Sunday from Detroit's airport. Northwest on Monday released the names of the crew on Flight 255 and the names of three off-duty employees who were killed aboard the plane. However, the airline has said it will not release a passenger list, and Detroit officials said it would probably be Friday before a list would be available from the county medical examiner.

Reporting from Tucson — The Dodgers sent a part of their team to the Phoenix suburb of Surprise on Friday to face the Kansas City Royals. Another group traveled more than two hours from the team's spring-training complex to Tucson, where the Chicago White Sox were waiting for them. Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier were in the second group. So were fellow starters Dee Gordon, Juan Rivera, Mark Ellis and A.J. Ellis. Veteran reserves Tony Gwynn Jr. and Jerry Hairston Jr. also made the 130-mile trip.

After four decades in prison for an Arizona mass murder he has always vehemently insisted he did not commit, Louis Taylor will sometime Tuesday walk out of the shadow of confinement -- a free man. Now 59, he was convicted in 1970 in connection with a Tucson hotel fire that killed 29 people. Taylor was 16 when he went to jail, sentenced to 28 consecutive life sentences. Now that crime and all that time will soon be in his past. He pleaded no-contest to the charges in a Tucson court, allowing the wheels of justice to move toward his freedom.

TUCSON - This was a game the young UCLA Bruins seemingly had no business winning. Yet at the end, there was Kyle Anderson trying to give high fives to Arizona students, and finding no takers. There was Jordan Adams, weary from two days of illness, bouncing toward the locker room, grinning at the silence. There was Shabazz Muhammad having the last laugh, as the student section at McKale Center left behind the placards personally addressed to him - some funny, some not. Freshmen having fun. The 84-73 victory over sixth-ranked Arizona on Thursday probably won't sink in for a bit, at least with UCLA's freshmen.

Some small cars and crossovers, typically from foreign automakers, are more likely to be bought by women than men. That's the finding of a study of 13 million U.S. vehicle registrations over the last two years by TrueCar.com, the Santa Monica auto pricing information company. Volkswagen's Beetle was the auto most likely to be purchased by a woman. Just over 56% of the buyers registering a new Beetle were women, the study found. But after that, female buyers tended toward small sport utility vehicles.

In one of the most jarring business defections from Southern California, Hughes Aircraft will close its Canoga Park missile facility and move 1,900 engineering-related jobs to Tucson by 1994, the aerospace firm said Monday. The decision ranks among the largest transfers of aerospace jobs out of the state since the trend began in the mid-1980s. More ominously, it undercuts one of the state's last remaining strengths: retaining its wealth of science and engineering talent.

Enjoyed Jerry Hulse's article March 1 on Tucson's resorts, but wish he had mentioned Canyon Ranch on the east side of town. Not a fat farm but a fitness center with the finest equipment I have ever seen: two gyms, four racquetball courts, indoor and outdoor pools, jogging path, tennis courts, private cabanas. The celebrities come from all over to tune up the ol' bods. It's at 8600 E. Rockcliff Road, Tucson, Ariz. 85715, $125-$175 double. RAY KOVITZ Mission Viejo

Ian Thorpe of Australia powered to his second world record in three days Tuesday in the World Championships at Fukuoka, Japan. Michael Phelps of the U.S. also smashed a world record, breaking his mark in the 200-meter butterfly with a time of 1:54.58. Thorpe's two records are his 10th and 11th in individual long-course events. He won three Olympic gold medals at Sydney, Australia, last year and already has three world titles at Fukuoka.
