AP Source: Wounded Calif. ICE agent is high rankAP Source: ICE agent wounded in California federal building is high-ranking official
LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) ' A man wounded in a shooting at a federal building in Long Beach, Calif., is a high-ranking Immigration and Customs Enforcement official.
A law enforcement official who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of a lack of authorization to release information says an agent who was killed was a subordinate.
But the source says that agent did not report directly to the higher-level official at the office of ICE Homeland Security Investigations.
The FBI says a third agent intervened Thursday and shot the gunman to prevent more rounds being fired at the victim.
The gunman died at the scene and the wounded agent was in stable condition at a hospital at last report.
