Civilian Shot by Federal Agent
Federal agents remain tight lipped tonight about the shooting of a civilian in Laredo's west side.
It happened early this afternoon at Killam Industrial Park where investigators combed the scene for hours.
It's our top story tonight.
A helicopter circled the crime scene hours after the shooting happened at around 2 P.M. in this warehouse area off of Mines Road.
While law enforcement is not saying much a mini van remained wrapped in crime scene tape in front of a business there, as well as the warehouse fence.
At this point details are vague but what officials have told us is that a federal agent possibly an agent from the Drug Enforcement Administration shot a civilian there.
It's unclear if that victim is a suspect if he was armed or if there were drugs involved.
Paramedics say he was transported to Laredo Medical Center.
Pro8news is still awaiting word from DEA officials but they have not returned our calls as of yet.
