FBI Says Immigration Agent Justified in Killing Colleague

An immigration agent was justified in fatally shooting a colleague who opened fire on their boss in a federal office building last year, the FBI has determined.

The wild double-shooting at the Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Long Beach office occurred after Kevin Kozak, the second-in-command for the agency's Los Angeles region, turned down a transfer request by Ezequiel Garcia, who then shot him six times. Another agent rushed into the room and killed Garcia. Kozak survived.
