(LOS ANGELES) — It was a violent 24 hours for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents in California.

In Carson, south of Los Angeles, an ICE agent was shot dead at his home in what is being described as a domestic incident. His 14-year-old son was arrested for allegedly firing the fatal shot.

“We’re still working on the motive to this shooting,” said Holly Francisco of the LA County Sheriff’s Department. “It’s going to take numerous interviews and an investigation.”

And in Petaluma, north of San Francisco, three ICE agents were shot Thursday morning while serving warrants. Their injuries do not appear to be life threatening.

“Three special agents with ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) were injured in the Bay Area this morning while executing high risk federal warrants related to an ongoing criminal investigation. The special agents were transported to a local hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries,” ICE said in a statement.

“One suspect is in custody,” the statement continued. “The investigation into the incident and the related criminal case are both ongoing.”
