An FBI agent was taken Tuesday afternoon to University Medical Center with injuries suffered while attempting to serve a warrant on a fugitive in the eastern valley, the agency said. The suspect also was shot.
The agent's injuries were not thought to be life-threatening, said Bridget Pappas, public affairs specialist for the FBI office in Las Vegas.
The shootings occurred about 3 p.m. as a criminal apprehension team with members from the FBI, Metro Police and Henderson Police were serving the warrant in an area east of Charleston and Nellis boulevards. As the officers approached the subject, a chase ensued and shots fired, Pappas said.
Pappas would not comment further about the suspect.
Police continued to cordon off an area near Starridge Way and Eastbrook Drive.
