FBI Investigates ICE Shooting of Undocumented Man in Nashville Suburb

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, a suburb of Nashville, where workers often gather to be picked up for a day’s work.

ICE agents were attempting to detain an unnamed 39-year-old Mexican man, who reportedly attempted to flee in a white box truck, when one of the agents shot him twice.

It has now been revealed that the ICE agent involved in the shooting is one of the officers who made headlines in July after community members blocked attempts to detain an undocumented man in Hermitage, Tennessee.
