1 Person Fatally Shot During Hostage Rescue In Houston!

According to a prosecutor, days before the hostage rescue that resulted in the death of a suspect in Houston on Thursday, three migrants were taken hostage from a car in a neighboring county.

According to Sean Whittmore, a prosecutor with the Waller County District Attorney’s Office, the three migrants were traveling in a car on Interstate 10 in the southern part of Waller County on Saturday when kidnappers stopped them and forced them into another vehicle.

According to Whittmore, it seems likely that the migrant migrants’ driver contacted 911 and reported the kidnapping to the Waller County Sheriff’s Office.

Later, the sheriff’s office collaborated with the FBI, whose agents were involved in an early-morning gunshot in north Houston on Thursday, which resulted in the rescue of two persons.

During a brief news conference on Thursday, James Smith, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Houston office, stated that agents with the hostage rescue team were freeing the migrants when shots started to fly.

He claimed that while one suspect was shot and killed, another was apprehended by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff’s office spokesman Senior Deputy Thomas Gilliland stated that he could not disclose any details about the suspect due to the FBI’s detention of that person.

According to Smith, agents freed two detained individuals at a motel.

After the press briefing, Whittmore informed The Associated Press that he believed three people had been abducted. He directed the FBI to handle inquiries about the discrepancy. During his news conference, Smith avoided addressing the contradiction.

Smith stated that no agents were hurt in the shooting, and an FBI review team will investigate it.

“In the interest of protecting the integrity of the ongoing investigation, we cannot provide any more details at this time,” Smith said.

The FBI’s Houston office refuses to disclose how they found the migrants, what led to the shooting, or how many agents were involved.

After the incident, there was no longer a threat to the public’s safety, according to the FBI.

About the migrants’ nationalities, immigration status, or if they were being transported unlawfully at the time of their kidnapping, Whittmore declined to comment.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesperson Tim Oberle declined to comment on the subjects’ immigration status in an email, directing all inquiries to the FBI instead.
