Matthew Malmquist

Special Agent, Homeland Security Investigations, Bush Airport, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement

On the afternoon of May 2, 2013, a Beaumont, Texas man entered the Bush International Airport and fired two rounds of ammunition from a handgun into the terminal. ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Special Agent Malmquist was sitting nearby in the HSI Airport Group Office, and quickly exited to respond to the shooting. A man in a wheelchair was positioned just twenty yards from the shooter, preventing SA Malmquist from shooting immediately. Malmquist repositioned himself to be more visible to the shooter, firing a shot at the same time the shooter took his own life.
