FBI agents involved in 2 separate fatal shootings
Federal authorities said Wednesday they are continuing to investigate two fatal agent-involved shootings but provided few other details.
On Tuesday, the agency announced that an agent fatally shot a person in the 100 block of Wilbur Parrish Circle in Belton. The person who was shot was taken to a hospital, where they were pronounced dead, the FBI said in a statement.
No other details have been released, including why agents responded to the area and what led up to the shooting.
The name of the victim has not been released.
“The FBI takes any shooting incident involving our agents seriously,” the agency said in a statement. “In accordance with FBI policy, the shooting incident will be investigated by the FBI’s Inspection Division. The review process is thorough and objective, and is conducted as expeditiously as possible under the circumstances.”
It is the second time recently an FBI agent has been involved in a fatal shooting. In February, David William Irving, 35, was shot and killed by an agent at the Alcazar apartment building at 3906 Baltimore.
Irving was fatally shot as a task force served an arrest warrant, according to FBI officials in Kansas City.
The FBI did not describe the details of the arrest warrant or how the shooting occurred. It did not say whether Irving died at the scene.
The FBI’s inspection division, based in Washington, D.C., is investigating that shooting, according to an agency spokesman.
