ICE agent was fatally shot during struggle for gun

Authorities: ICE agent was fatally shot in struggle for gun at office in Long Beach, Calif. By The Associated Press

LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) ' Authorities say an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent accused of shooting his supervisor at least six times in Long Beach, Calif., died after an intense struggle for his gun with another agent.

ICE spokeswoman Virginia Kice said Saturday that Ezequiel Garcia struggled for the gun after shooting the agency's Los Angeles-area second-in-command in the hand, knee and torso.

Garcia had just had a discussion about his job performance with Kevin Kozak when the other agent heard gunfire and wheeled back into the office. Kice says the unnamed agent killed Garcia during Thursday's struggle.
