A 16-year-old illegal immigrant was arrested Saturday (August 1) after he allegedly set fire to a Precinct 4 deputy constable’s patrol car at the Precinct 4 building in Manvel.
The teenager then allegedly pointed a .22 caliber rifle from his car window as a deputy was approaching. The deputy pulled his weapon and retreated to his patrol vehicle. The suspect fled the scene and a pursuit began.
During the pursuit, the suspect swerved at two motorcycle officers who were escorting a funeral. One officer’s motorcycle was struck, but no officers were injured.
The suspect lost control of his vehicle and again pulled the rifle on the deputies. Deputies were able to take the suspect into custody without firing any weapons.
According to Brazoria County Sheriff’s Office Investigator Paige Newsom, the suspect said that he was tired of his people getting shot by police and nothing happening, so he came to shoot them.
He also reportedly said that the incident was about a war against the government because Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is always sending Mexicans back to Mexico for no reason, and they are the ones here in America doing all the work.
