BREAKING: Armed Man Shot Dead After Throwing Incendiary Devices at ICE Detention Center

An armed man was shot dead Saturday morning after trying to attack an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) center in Tacoma, Washington.

The Seattle Times reported:

Tacoma police said they shot at an armed man early Saturday who was attacking the Northwest Detention Center, the holding facility in Tacoma for federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The man died at the scene.

Around 4 a.m., officers responded to an ICE employee’s report of a man armed with a rifle and throwing home-made incendiaries at the building and vehicles in the detention center’s parking lot, as well as attempting to ignite a propane tank, according to Tacoma police. Officers say they saw the man wearing a satchel and holding flares, as well as the rifle.

Officers reported “shots fired,” police spokeswoman Loretta Cool said, at which point the officers had fired; she did not know whether the man also fired.

The man was pronounced dead on the scene, however it is unclear who shot the attacker because four different police officers were involved in the shootout.

A spokeswoman for ICE said that no officers ore ICE employees were injured.

ICE agents are reportedly going to begin raids on Sunday to round up and deport illegal aliens who have deportation orders.

Democrats such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi all demonized and attacked ICE agents earlier this week and instructed illegal aliens on how to evade the agents.

This attack on the ICE detention center in Tacoma is directly related to the demonization of the agency by the media and open borders Democrats.
