Authorities arrested a 14-year-old boy today May 3, 2012, on suspicion of shooting to death his father, who was killed by a single round fired through a window from outside his Carson home.

The shooting in the 19300 block of Broadacres Avenue was reported at 9:08 p.m. Wednesday, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Deputy Peter Gomez said.

The victim was declared dead at the scene.

He was identified as ICE Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent Myron W. Chisem, 42, according to ICE. Chisem, a native of Torrance, was a U.S. Navy veteran, and had joined ICE in 2007.

Chisem’s 14-year-old son, whose name was not released, was booked for murder at the sheriff’s Carson station, and was being transferred to a juvenile detention facility, the sheriff’s department reported.

The victim’s two-story house is situated on a well-manicured street of single-family homes, less than a block from Broadacres Elementary School.

ICE is part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

“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.
