14-Year-Old Boy Shoots and Kills Immigration Agent Father
A 14-year-old boy was arrested this morning on suspicion of shooting and killing his father, a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement special agent.
The victim was found in his home in Carson after a 9-1-1 call was made to authorities just after 9:00 p.m. last night, according to City News Service. The call was allegedly placed by the son. His father had one gunshot wound to the head, and was declared dead at the scene.
The agent, whose name hasn't been released, was about 40 years old.
KTLA reports that the single round was fired from the backyard by the boy, striking the father as he sat in the TV room. The two were allegedly alone in the house at the time of the incident. It's not clear what prompted the shooting.
The boy was taken into custody today. His mother was with him at the sheriff's station.
