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.
