Father and son charged in shooting of ICE special agent

“A father and his adult son, as well as a minor, have been implicated in the shooting Tuesday of Kelton Harrison, a special agent with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations division.

Pedro Alvarado, 41, and Arnoldo Alvarado, 18, have been arrested and charged with assault of a federal officer and knowingly using and carrying a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence.

Harrison sustained one gunshot wound to the back and underwent surgery Tuesday at McAllen Medical Center, where he was in stable condition and continued to improve as of Wednesday.

HSI special agents were conducting surveillance early Tuesday morning in anticipation of a drug deal believed to be taking place near Hargill, according to federal court documents. Harrison was parked in his official vehicle near the intersection of Farm-to-Market Road 493 and Cemetery Road when another vehicle approached and its occupants opened fire on his silver Jeep SUV.

The agent drove north on FM 493 as the second vehicle pursued him and its occupants continued shooting, court documents state. Harrison lost control of his vehicle at the intersection of FM 493 and State Highway 186.

Fellow agents quickly arrived on the scene and discovered Harrison had sustained one gunshot wound to the back, according to the court documents.”
