Perhaps he was ordered to do something tyrannical or unconstitutional? That might set someone off.

I used to be a Customs Inspector at the Los Angeles/Long Beach Seaport. I wonder if anyone that I knew was involved.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement released the following statement Thursday night:

“At approximately 5:30 (Pacific) this afternoon, two agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) were shot inside the agency’s offices at the federal building in Long Beach. One of the agents died at the scene. The second agent was transported to a local hospital where he is listed in stable condition. The names of the agents are not being released pending notification of the next of kin. The shooting is being investigated by HSI’s Office of Professional Responsibility, the Long Beach Police Department and the FBI.”

The agent shot his boss. A third came in and shot the shooter dead. The supervisor is alive in the hospital.

Link to LA Times update, like our FRiends report, now they say the first shooter dead, supervisor injured, the agent that came to the supervisor's rescue and took out the first shooter is uninjured; still no names.

These people need to have their guns taken away. It’s the gun’s fault this happened. Give them brooms instead. When was the last time you heard of someone dying from broom inflicted wounds. (/sarc)

It’s been changed at the source to read, “ICE agent shootout leaves 1 dead, 1 wounded in Long Beach [Updated]”.

Early reports were extremely confused.

Went to the LA Times blog to see if there's anything new...FBI is taking over the investigation, the injured supervisor is said to be in stable condition. No names.

Getting late where I am and I'm going to shut my eyes; I'm sure in the AM they'll issue a more coherent statement and tell us what it was all about and who the parties involved were. Good night, all. ~A.~

Some really good trauma surgeons operated on the agent for several hours this evening at St. Mary Medical Center in downtown Long Beach.
Multiple gunshot wounds. He’s in stable condition tonight, “resting comfortably”. He would have been killed if the other agent hadn’t acted so quickly.

Prayers up to those innocently involved. ICE agents try, but are subject to DHS policies, and we all know what those policies are.

I suspect either a random disgruntled individual or an illegal immigration supporter/activist gone wild. Keep close watch on this one...it could be the beginning of something ugly. Doubt it, but nowadays...I'm not surprised by anything.

That thought crossed my mind too. Most likely they are looking for some connection between the shooter and homegrown terrorists now.

Yeah, but his lawyer tipped him off to a smart investment....so he invested it all w/ Madoff (/sarc).

I just checked google news, and still no names. It's been more than 12 hours, which should be more than enough time to notify families.

I'm going to guess that there's a reason for not wanting the public to know the shooter's name before the Friday night news dump.

Do you mean to suggest that the media might be concealing the possibility that A-Certain-Ethnic-Group-Which-Shall-Not-Be-Named could be involved? Or that some Exalted Proclamation from the regime could have been the cause of such unpleasantness?

Oh, the hugh manatee.

ICE have less than brooms. How long did ramos and compean spend in jail for shooting an illegal alien running drugs across the border? Who used the USA to sue the agency?

Shows you how bad he was shot up if they took him to St Mary’s, the closest hospital but not the best trauma center. Glad he’s gonna make it.

I wonder if this had something to do with the earlier incident yesterday when two F-16’s were scrambled from Riverside to intercept a Cessna which had strayed into Obama’s air space. The plane was forced to land at Long Beach Airport and there was 40 pounds of marijuana onboard. That happened around 11:30 AM. Wouldn’t Homeland Security get involved in something like this? ICE is part of DHS now.

Just a couple of unrelated incidents?? The authorities are also hush-hush about the plane incident. No identification of the pilot, etc.

It was interesting to watch endless alphabet agencies line up to the microphones last night and immediately started congratulating each other on the quick response, commenting on what a great, "Family" they are, as one after another was eager to step up to the mic for face time.

This now occurs on nearly every single notable incident involving local, state and federal agencies...They immediately call a press conference, announcing to all what a great job they all did. Regardless of the event or circumstances, as the crowd of government "Officials" crowd up to the mic.

It might have been one of those walking guns that is in cahoots with the Mexican drug cartels and Muslim radicals across the border. They are plenty angry about the raaaacis Republicans asking all those questions of Brotha Holder!
