Shooter who wounded agent has taken own life, officials say
RACINE, Wis. (AP) — A person who shot and wounded a federal agent in Racine Wednesday has apparently taken his own life, according to the U.S. Marshals Service.
The agency was leading a task force which was attempted to serve a warrant when the when an individual opened fire and one officer was struck, federal officials said.
The officer sustained non-life threatening injuries, the Marshals Service said.
“Members of the task force did not fire, but the subject apparently took his own life,” according to a statement from the federal agency.
Racine police say the federal agent was participating in a “multi-jurisdictional” operation.
FBI spokesman Leonard Peace in Milwaukee says his agency is currently in Racine investigating a shooting incident involving a federal officer.
Authorities earlier advised residents living nearby to remain in their homes until the situation is resolved.
