Source: Agent who shot colleague fought sex crime

Source: ICE agent who fatally shot colleague in Long Beach, Calif., fought child sex crimes By The Associated Press

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent believed to have fatally shot a colleague who opened fire on a supervisor in Long Beach, Calif. is known for investigating sex crimes against children.

Perry Woo received the U.S. Justice Department's Officer of the Year Award for Missing and Exploited Children in 2004 for an investigation that led to the capture of eight alleged child molesters and pornographers. Authorities credit his work for rescuing 30 Mexican children, including an 8-year-old.

ICE is not publicly identifying Woo as the agent who killed his colleague, Ezequiel Garcia, after Garcia allegedly fired his weapon at ICE's second-in-command in the Los Angeles region.

However, an official familiar with the investigation of the shooting confirms Woo's identity to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the source is not authorized to speak publicly.
