On 2017 September 22, IceCube released a public alert announcing the detection of a well-reconstructed, high-energy neutrino event. Such alerts issued through the Extremely High Energy (EHE) alert stream occur roughly four times a year. Subsequent multimessenger follow-up identified that the event was coincident in direction and time with a gamma-ray flare from the blazar TXS 0506+056. This association prompted an archival analysis searching for additional neutrinos from the direction of TXS 0506+056 using 9.5 years of IceCube neutrino observations. An excess of neutrino events with respect to atmospheric backgrounds was found between September 2014 and March 2015. The analysis yields 3:5σ evidence for neutrino emission from the direction of TXS 0506+056, independent of and prior to the 2017 emission.
