Federal law enforcement is investigating after shots were fired into an Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in San Antonio early Tuesday morning.

“The shooting took place around 3 a.m. Tuesday on the 1700 block of NE Loop 410 near Brookhaven Drive,” Sinclair Broadcast Group San Antonio reported.

“Investigators say that multiple shots were fired on two floors targeting ICE officials.”

The outlet reported that another building was also targeted.

The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security are investigating what happened, with authorities reviewing surveillance footage of the surrounding area.

Authorities initially took a suspect into custody in relation to the shooting, but that person was later released.

“Federal investigators … are to working to determine whether the ICE offices were intentionally targeted,” according to KHOU.

Plenty of questions still remain regarding the motive behind the shooting.

Officials “were not sure right away from where the shots were fired, or how they reached one of the top floors on one of the tallest buildings in the area,” KSAT reported.

“Police also were not sure whether that office was targeted purposely or if it was hit randomly,” the outlet continued.

According to the Washington Examiner, the ICE offices do not appear to have bulletproof windows.

“They have a 24/7 command center in there so there were people in the building,” a former senior ICE official who the Examiner described as having “spoke with an official based at the office” said.

While the alleged shooter’s motives remain unclear, the incident comes just weeks after an armed man threw incendiary devices at a migrant detention center in Washington state, as The Washington Post reported.

    Probably another asshole hired by the DNC so they can keep pushing their anti-gun bullshit. And paid by Soros.

    This is definitely caused by the socialist demon-rats lying and accusing these agents of things they do not do and lying about the conditions at these facilities! Yes they are crowed but these places are clean and the people kept there are not mistreated! They are supplied food, clothing, medical treatment, TV, access to phones, education, exercise areas! More than they are use to! They need to start punishing these crazy lunatics that do this kind of thing.

    Time to arm ICE officers & agents in said offices nationwide, Defcon 1.
    Expand CCTV array outside & use other cameras to screen whole area
    Add armor to glass in ICE offices.
    Move to interior offices with no windows or limited view.
    Need arms locker, ammo & rifles.

    I’m not sure we should report that someone doesn’t have bulletproof windows. It might give someone an idea.
