A man armed with a rifle attacked an immigration detention facility in Washington state early on Saturday, throwing incendiary devices at the building and cars in the parking lot before dying after police opened fire, authorities said.
An employee at the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma reported one vehicle on fire and said the suspect was also attempting to ignite a large propane tank outside the facility, the Tacoma Police Department said in a statement.
When four officers arrived at about 4 a.m., shots were fired and the suspect was later determined to be deceased at the scene.
"Officers noted that in addition to the weapon, he was wearing a satchel and had flares on his person," the statement said, adding that no officers were injured.
