Illegal Alien Arrested After Allegedly Opening Fire At Business

( – Last week in North Carolina, law enforcement arrested Awet Hagos, aged 32, after he fired shots at a business, resisted arrest and attacked officers. Hagos, who is an illegal immigrant, now faces charges including assault on government officials, resisting officers, and carrying a concealed weapon. He might face even more charges due to his illegal status in the country.

Police responded to a call from Quick Stop convenience store, where Hagos was shooting at the building. Despite their attempts to stun him with tasers, he fought back and ultimately fled the scene. He then locked himself in his residence for several hours. During the altercation, he attempted to take a deputy’s rifle.

Hagos eventually escaped his residence too and retreated into a nearby camper. The officers were then able to finally subdue and arrest him. Fortunately, nobody was killed in the process.

Gates County Sheriff, Ray Campbell, described the situation as chaotic and noted the suspect’s extreme resistance and several attempts to disarm officers.

After the arrest, it was discovered that Hagos is listed in the Terrorist Screening Center (TSC), commonly known as the terrorist “watchlist,” according to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Reports indicate that Hagos is originally from a region near the Yemen border in Africa. He had previously lived in Haiti before moving to California, a known “sanctuary state” that willingly harbors illegal immigrants, and then to North Carolina.

He is currently being held in Albemarle District Jail on a $100,000 bond. ICE, however, issued a detainer request, as he was confirmed to be living in the US illegally. ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) now await the nearest opportunity to deport him.

The crisis of deadly crimes committed by illegal immigrants in the past year has gotten significantly worse. Politicians from both sides of the spectrum have called on Biden to make stricter measures so that people like Hagos can be caught and stopped before entering the US.
