FBI Agent Shot in Leg at Philadelphia Courthouse


“An FBI agent was injured Monday morning when a gun went off in the loading dock area of the federal courthouse in Philadelphia,” WPVI reported.

It was not immediately clear if the agent shot himself, or if another agent accidentally discharged.

After being struck in the leg, injured FBI agent was taken to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center in stable condition.

“One FBI special agent received minor injuries, is receiving medical attention, and is expected to be treated and released,” the FBI said in a statement.

The FBI is investigating the shooting.

NBC Philadelphia noted:

The FBI said in a statement that it “takes all shooting incidents involving our agents or task force members seriously” and an FBI team is investigating.

“The review process is thorough and objective, and is conducted as expeditiously as possible under the circumstances,” the statement said.
