An employee of a nearby business was at work when the shooting happened. “A bunch of guys just got right out of the car yelling, ‘FBI, FBI!,'” said Eli Dodrill, who works near the scene.
The FBI has not released the name of the agents involved or the name of the deceased individual. The FBI has not said if the deceased individual was the target of the search warrant. They have also not said if any other suspects were detained or involved.
The shooting drew the attention of a small group of people who showed up to the scene late Wednesday evening with signs and shouting, calling for the abolishment of police. One person from that group of protestors was detained by police.
