Several gunshots were fired early today at the northeast side high rise office building which houses, among many other tenants, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
Several windows were broken in the building at Loop 410 and Nacogdoches. Nobody was hurt, and one person was taken in for questioning, but police are not labeling the individual as a ‘suspect.’
ICE has been under attack for months by immigrant rights groups for its handling of immigrants and their families. ICE was criticized recently for major raids on food processing facilities in Mississippi where hundreds of illegal immigrants were arrested.
Police don’t know whether ICE was targeted in this morning’s attack, or if the person who did the shooting even knew the agency’s offices are in the building.
