The 14-year-old son of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent was arrested Thursday morning after the agent's shooting death Wednesday night in a Carson home.

Authorities responded to a 911 call at about 9 p.m. from the residence block of Broadacres Avenue in Carson. The caller told dispatchers his father had been shot.

"We do believe (the son) made the 911 call," said Lt. Holly Francisco

The agent was pronounced dead at the scene.

A preliminary investigation indicated the fatal round was fired from outside the home and through a window, investigators said. The agent's service weapon was used in the shooting, according to investigators.

"This is a difficult time for ICE, especially for the family and loved ones  of the agent. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers," ICE Director  John Morton said in a statement.
