Man dead after attacking immigration detention facility in Washington

An employee at the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma reported one vehicle on fire and said the suspect was also attempting to ignite a large propane tank outside the facility, the Tacoma Police Department said in a statement.

When four officers arrived, shots were fired and the suspect was later determined to be deceased at the scene.

The Northwest Detention Center is privately operated by The GEO Group on behalf of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

The man’s identity and his motive remained unknown, a police spokeswoman told Reuters, adding that the medical examiner’s report could be expected as early as Monday (July 15).
