FBI Investigates Shooting of Undocumented Man by ICE Agent in Tennessee

HeadlineSep 09, 2019

In Tennessee, the FBI is investigating the shooting of an undocumented immigrant by an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent during a traffic stop last week. The shooting occurred Thursday at a supermarket parking lot in Antioch after ICE agents attempted to detain an unnamed 39-year-old Mexican man. The man reportedly attempted to flee in a white truck when one of the agents shot him twice. A local news channel has released a closed-circuit video of the incident showing the truck driving away from the scene and one agent raising his firearm and pointing at the truck. The injured man managed to flee the scene but later surrendered to FBI agents and was treated and released from a local hospital. He has not been arrested or charged with a crime. We’ll have more on this story later in the broadcast.
