Investigation into ICE agent’s use of weapon in Metairie


OF ICE WILL NOT TELL US WHY
THEIR DEPORTATION OFFICER FIRED
THEIR WEAPON HERE TODAY OR WHO
THEY WERE SHOOTING AT BUT THEY
DID CONFIRM THAT THIS
INVESTIGATION INVOLVES SOLELY ICE PERSONNEL WITNESSES HERE. ALSO TELLING ME THAT THERE WERE
ONLY ICE AGENTS INSIDE OF THE
APARTMENT WHEN THEY HEARD THE
SHOT FIRED. JUST HOURS AFTER
ALMIR. RAMIREZ SAYS AN ICE AGENT
FIRED A GUN INSIDE OF HIS APARTMENT. HE DESCRIBES HIS
REACTION WITH JUST ONE WORD. THAT’LL BE THE YOUNG FATHER SAYS
HE AND HIS NEIGHBORS WERE WOKEN
UP THIS MORNING BY AGENTS
BEATING ON THEIR DOORS AND
KICKING ONE DOOR IN IT’S CRAZY. YOU KNOW, I’VE BEEN LIVING IN
METAIRIE WELL IN THIS AREA FALL
LIKE FIVE SIX YEARS AND I’VE
NEVER SEEN THIS MUCH COMMOTION. THEY SAY THE MEN WERE ALL
HANDCUFFED AND LINED UP ALONG
THIS WALL AS AGENTS SEARCHED THE
FAMILIES APARTMENTS. IT WAS
DURING THAT SEARCH WITH ONLY
AGENTS INSIDE WHEN THEY HEARD A GUNSHOT THE BULLET PIERCING THE
WALL HOW WOULD THE AGENTS HAVE
KNOWN THAT THERE MIGHT NOT HAVE
BEEN ANOTHER CHILD HIDING INSIDE
THERE, YOU KNOW, SO THIS IS
REALLY AGGRESSIVE AND INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR WHETHER
THE SHOT WAS AN ACCIDENT OR
NEGLIGENT ICE WILL SAY TELLING
WDSU THE INCIDENT IS UNDER
INVESTIGATION RAPHAEL GOYA CHI
WITH THE METROPOLITAN CRIME COMMISSION SAYS THE FAMILIES
WILL LIKELY NEVER KNOW WHAT
HAPPENED INSIDE OF THEIR HOME. I’M NOT VERY CONFIDENT THAT
WE’RE EVER GOING TO HEAR WHAT
THE OUTCOME OF THAT
ADMINISTRATIVE INVESTIGATION IS
BECAUSE MANY OF THOSE ARE
HANDLED IN-HOUSE WITHOUT ANY PUBLIC DISCLOSURES. ICE WOULD
NOT TELL US IF THE DEPORTATION
OFFICER WHO FIRED THEIR WEAPON
AT THIS APARTMENT BUILDING TODAY
WOULD REMAIN ON ACTIVE DUTY
WHILE THE INVESTIGATION CONTINUES REPORTING LIVE IN
