Immigration agent hailed as hero for halting gunman's attack - ICE Agent who went postal was ID'ed as Ezequiel Garcia


Authorities hailed an Immigration and Customs Enforcement supervisor as a hero after he shot a fellow employee who had opened fire in a Long Beach federal office, seriously wounding another agent.

Kevin Kozak, 51, a second-in-command of ICE in Los Angeles, suffered six gunshot wounds to his legs, upper torso and hands. Authorities identified the shooter as Ezequiel Garcia, 45, a supervisory agent, who was shot to death by another supervisor in the office after wounding Kozak.

Authorities did not identify the supervisor who shot Garcia.

Kozak, who previously served as acting head of ICE’s Los Angeles operations, remains hospitalized but is in stable condition, and is alert and talking, officials said at a news conference.

Garcia, who oversaw a squad investigating benefit fraud, was being “counseled” about his job performance when the discussion escalated, leading to the shooting, said Steve Martinez, assistant director in charge of the FBI.

“Kozak is alive today because of the heroic action of another ICE supervisor,” said Claude Arnold, special agent in charge for ICE in Los Angeles. “This is the first time anything of this nature has occurred within ICE."

The cause of this shooting is obvious. The Hispanyolo who went "postal" is just a typical ethnocentric spic who couldn't stand idle while his own species of sub-humans were being forced against their inherently criminal will to obey the laws of the United States. These over breeding, violent, destructive rats think they are above the white man's laws because they have no concern or respect for any of us, our families, or this great nation we built.

Was the 'performance' discussion regarding,

1: The agent not arresting enough illegals.

2: The agent arrested too many illegals.

3: None of the above.

Workplace violence. The supervisor may have been a total jerk. There's much more to this story that wasn't published.

Here they come. All those Mexican ICE agents you thought were gonna be the face of enforced immigration, they just showed their true colors. They sympatize with the enemy this will get worse.

Ezequiel Garcia voted for Obama, then asked him what he knew about benefits fraud.
