4 Federal Agents Injured During Shootout at Kansas Motel

1 minute read

Four federal agents were shot Saturday during an attempted arrest at a Kansas motel, which burned down after the shootout, authorities said.

Gunfire erupted at the Country Club Motel shortly after officers from the U.S. Marshals Service’s Fugitive Task Forces arrived to hunt down a suspect, Topeka Police Lt. Colleen Stuart told CNN. Two U.S. marshals, an FBI agent and a fourth federal agent were shot, but they all sustained non-life threatening injuries, Stuart said.

A fire broke out at the motel at the same time, Topeka police said in a statement, although it is unclear whether it was set intentionally. It’s also unclear whether authorities caught the suspect, who is a fugitive wanted on a warrant, CNN reports. The FBI is set to release more information about the incident later Sunday, Topeka police said.
