ICE agent involved in deadly shooting faced weapons charges

DETROIT (WXYZ) - The ICE agent, now under investigation for repeatedly shooting and killing a Detroit man, has retained an attorney, the 7 Action News Investigators have learned.

We have also learned Agent Mitchell Quinn, a former Detroit Police officer, faced weapons charges seven years ago.

ICE declined to comment on the charges, which were later dismissed. Quinn was hired by the federal agency shortly after the incident that led to those charges. According to records, Quinn was accused of putting a gun to his wife's head in February of 2008.

According to court documents obtained by the Action News Investigators, Quinn was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and weapons charges, both separate counts. Both were dismissed due to a lack of evidence.

Quinn is now facing questions after the death of fugitive Terrance Kellom, 20, during a warrant raid in Detroit. He claimed Kellom was armed with a hammer, something his family denies.

7 Action News went to the agent's home today for a comment, but no one answered the door.
