Associated Press

LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) — The FBI says a fatal shooting in a Southern California Immigration and Customs Enforcement office occurred as an agent was being counseled on his performance by a high-ranking ICE official.

Federal officials on Friday identified the gunman as 45-year-old supervisory special agent Ezequiel Garcia and the victim as 51-year-old Kevin Kozak, deputy special agent in charge of the Los Angeles area.

The officials say Kozak is in stable condition, recovering from six gunshot wounds. He is described as alert and talking.

Officials say Garcia was fatally shot by a third agent who intervened. That agent is on administrative leave and his identity is being withheld.
