2 Dead, 1 Wounded After Immigration and Customs Enforcement Officers Open Fire on Each Other

LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Two people were fatally shot and one was wounded Thursday at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in Long Beach, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press.

The Long Beach police official said the shooter killed one person, wounded another with a shot to the stomach, and then was killed. It was not immediately clear if the shooter died from a self-inflicted wound.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak publicly about the case.

It was not clear what motivated the shooting at the Glenn M. Anderson Federal Building in downtown Long Beach.

Video from a KABC-TV news helicopter showed several police officers on motorcycles escorting an ambulance to a nearby hospital.

A spokeswoman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement declined to comment and said the agency would release a statement later.

In addition to ICE, the federal building also houses the Internal Revenue Service and the U.S. Probation and Parole Office.
