Homeland Security agents from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency conducted a gang sweep raid in South San Francisco early Thursday morning, according to KTVU.
ICE is the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s largest investigative unit that focuses on border control, customs, trade and immigration. The agency wouldn't release any information about the South San Francisco raid when contacted this morning.
The raid made the news when three Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were injured in a similar operation on Thursday as well, while serving high-risk federal warrants to a home in Petaluma, according to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
The SWAT agents were with ICE's Homeland Security Investigations and were transported to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, agency spokeswoman Virginia Kice said.
One suspect was taken into custody, Kice said.
Kice said the Thursday raid was part of an ongoing, multi-agency criminal investigation.
