BREAKING NEWS Per FOX 11 LA:
14 year old son of ICE agent arrested for murdering his father in Carson. Reportedly used dad’s own gun.
Your link has been updated - looks like the son was arrested and BTW a shot to the leg if it hits an artery (femoral) can be fatal in a couple of minutes or so I’ve read.
New lead paragraph:
“The 14-year-old son of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent was arrested after the agent’s shooting death Wednesday night in a Carson home, investigators said Thursday morning.”
WOW.........looks like party time in the Justice Dept Executive Dining Room to celebrate another agents’ death.
You are right! A ruptured femoral artery will bleed out pretty quickly! I almost lost a patient in the ER when the doctor thought the leg wound was only superficial I alerted the doctor that the patient was unconscious and had a weak pulse. He returned to take a better look and after resuscitating and stabilizing him, the patient went to OR to repair the femoral artery. It was 1971, in Bedford Stuyvesant. Gang-related.
