The FBI is investigating a “targeted attack”, in which shots were fired at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), office, and other facilities associated with the agency based in San Antonio, Texas, in the beginning of the week.

The shooting occurred around 3 a.m. at the ICE cream building, on two floors, which set the administrative and executive offices were concerned, according to the San Antonio Express-News. The outlet has reported another shooting took place at a separate facility in which an ICE supplier is located.

FBI Special Agent in Charge Chris Combs said that those who are responsible are aware of what they are shooting at.



“With all of the photos we have were found on the floor where the ICE had offices,” Combs said. “This is not a question of a very specific type of attack. It is not a secret facility, you may have to go online, it is [the address] out there. So, they did a lot of research, and they knew what the flooring of ICE was on, they knew what buildings they were in, and they hit them.”

A man has been arrested briefly after the shooting, but was released after authorities determined he was not connected to the incident.

ICE did not respond to a Fox News request for comment on Tuesday.


Daniel, the Bible, the field office director, the enforcement agency and the removal, of San Antonio, is the fault of the players on the elected officials, the media and activists for the breakdown in the political debate, and has encouraged acts of violence.

“The political rhetoric and false information, that a number of politicians, the media, and activist groups should be reckless and to distribute it to the American people about the ICE-cream mission, only serve to further encourage such acts of violence,” the Bible told a Fox News affiliate KABB-TV. “ICE officers put their lives on the line every day to keep our communities safe and secure. This is a disturbing public debate over our critical law enforcement function, and it needlessly puts our staff in danger.”

The agency has been beset by criticism from lawmakers and immigration activists and the Home’s administration continues to target the people in the U.S. illegally.


Last month, a man was put to death by the state of Washington-authorities, and when he threw incendiary devices at both a law centre and in the area of propane tanks. In California, protesters demonstrating outside an ICE facility to replace the American flag with the Mexican flag.

“We are concerned that there may be additional attacks, and we need to stop with that,” Combs said. “We can’t allow the policy debate to lead us to the point of violence where federal employees are innocent people doing their jobs in jeopardy.”
