Austin Man Fires Ammo at Mexican Consulate; Against US Immigration Policy, Killed by Police

A Texas man -- upset about U.S. immigration policy -- was fatally shot by police today (November 28, 2014), after firing more than 100 rounds of ammunition at buildings including the Mexican consulate, a U.S. courthouse, and police headquarters in Austin, Texas, the Telegraph (British) website reports.

Police identified the gunman as Larry McQuilliams, 49, an Austin resident with a criminal history.

Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo said the targets indicated the attack was probably over U.S. immigration policy.

"When you look at the national debate right now about immigration, that ... comes to mind. Sometimes our political discourse becomes very heated and sometimes very angry," Acevedo told reporters.
