BREAKING: Armed Man Attacks ICE Prison With Incendiary Devices, Gets Taken Out

Tacoma Police Department officers fatally shot an armed man at the Northwest Detention Center.

Tacoma, WA - A man armed with a rifle and incendiary devices was fatally shot by Tacoma police officers Saturday morning as the suspect attacked a prison for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainees.

The incident happened at around 4 a.m. Saturday morning at the Northwest Detention Center, according to KOMO.

The Northwest Detention Center is a privately-run prison used to hold ICE detainees.

Police were called by a detention center employee for a man armed with a rifle who was throwing incendiary devices. At least one vehicle caught fire in the attack.

The suspect continued throwing the devices, and was in the process of trying to ignite a large propane tank and blow up buildings when confronted by Tacoma police officers, according to Tacoma PD.

During the confrontation, the suspect was fatally shot.

Nobody important was injured in the incident.

The four officers involved in the shooting have been placed on administrative leave, which is standard procedure.

The attack comes after a push by U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to label detention centers as "concentration camps." Rep. Ocasio-Cortez has also accused Customs and Border Protection officers of being threatening towards her.

The motive for the attack has not been released at this time. The identity of the suspect has not been released.

I know how these people can avoid staying in overcrowded holding facilities, AOC. Don't cross the border illegally! See how easy that was?

No doubt the shooter was Democrat and was trying to set free some illegals.

AOC is directly responsible for this person's death. Wonder if she will lose any sleep over it. Doubt it. One less vote for the Democrats in the next election.

I'm an American who happens to be Black. I wear my MAGA hat everywhere I go. I'm not buying the BS that everyone who wears the hats are racist. My feeling for years has been USA has been letting other countries step on us. Taking advantage of our generous nature was getting out of hand. And then when they disagreed with us kicking us square in the ass. Stealing our patents, watching our manufacturing leave the country has to stop. And we as a nation need to get our personal act together. Drugs, crime, work ethic, morals, education or lack there of....we as a nation were slipping backwards. I served this country in two armed services and I'll be demand if I'm going to just sit back and let this country slip into the sewer without a fight. This is not just about Donald Trump or MAGA hats. People better realize this is about the soul of one of the last truly free nations on this earth. MAGA.
