Immigration attorney Rusten Hurd told Channel 9 that people in the building ran away from windows and doors in a panic after hearing the gunshots because they were afraid someone would attack the office.
“There was a desk in the immigration officer’s office and we all went down behind it – probably 20 of us in a small office,” Hurd said. “It was really helpful for him to do that.”
The office is closed on Tuesdays and reopened on Wednesdays. Missed appointments will be postponed.
