A DEA agent fatally shot a suspect in a drug probe on Chicago’s west side on Saturday morning, WLS TV reports.

The DEA said it was conducting surveillance on, “an individual and a location known as a multiple-kilogram cocaine distribution point,”  the station reports.

A marked police car attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the suspect, Gus Tousis, 43, of Bartlett, who  fled and temporarily got away from law enforcement, the station reports.

Authorities attempted a second traffic stop, and Tousis, according to the DEA, turned his vehicle at a DEA agent and hit the agent, who fired his gun. Tousis died at the scene, the DEA said. The agent sustained non-life threatening injuries.

Off-Duty ATF Agent Accused of Shooting Dog Outside Middle School in Virginia

A dog owner says an off-duty ATF agent fatally shot his mastiff puppy outside of a middle school in Spotsylvania County, Va., Fox 5 reports.

Vance Gibbs said he brings his dogs , four puppies and three adult mastiffs, to a large field at Ni River Middle School several times a week. On Tuesday, he watched his 8-month-old Presa Canario mastiff puppy Ari die in his arm.

Gibbs said it all happened when a golden retriever belonging to an off-duty ATF agent walked up on his dog, and his dogs, started chasing after it.

He said the dogs started fighting and Gibbs threw himself into the middle to try and get his dogs away. He said the ATF agent pulled out a gun and fired twice into the ground, and then a third time, hitting his dog Ari in the side. She died minutes later.

“If he would have gave me the time in the first place, I would have got them all together,” Gibbs tells Fox 5. “If the shots didn’t scare them the one time – stop. What are you doing? Shooting a puppy? I understand he is protecting his family and everything else, but I am on the ground with your dog.”

Theft Trial for ATF Senior Agent in Alabama is Delayed

Trial in Birmingham, Ala., for senior ATF agent Jay Bagwell, who is charged with theft, has been delayed as a result of back surgery, AL.com reports.

The “prescribed pain medication renders the defendant unable to effectively participate in the defense of his case,” U.S. Chief Judge Karon O Bowdre wrote. The trial will resume when he recovers.

An indictment alleges that in November 2014 Bagwell “embezzled, stole, purloined, and knowingly converted to his use and the use of another, a thing of value of the United States and of any department or agency thereof.” The indictment only says that the amount of money exceeds $1,000.

“It is our privilege to represent Jay Bagwell, a twenty-five year veteran ATF agent. If a thorough investigation had been conducted by the government, and Mr. Bagwell allowed to provide documentation, this charge would have never existed,” defense attorney Lance Bell said. “We have provided documentation to the government to exonerate this charge and restore Mr. Bagwell’s good name. I wish that I could say more at this time, but I think that the end result will speak for itself.

An ATF FBI agent was in critical condition this morning after being shot while working undercover in a joint operation with Chicago police on the city’s South Side.

The agent was shot by an unknown gunman around 3:15 a.m. and rushed to Stroger Hospital

ATF agents have partnered with Chicago police to crack down on the proliferation of gang-related rifle shootings in that part of the city.

Gang members with rifles have shot more than 14o people – 50 of them fatally, between the fall of 2016 and the end of 2017, according to the Chicago Tribune.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Friday’s shooting involved a rifle.

The identity of the ATF agent was not disclosed as of 8 a.m. on Friday.

An off-duty FBI agent distracted by his cell phone crashed his car on a highway north of Washington D.C., triggering a series of tragic events that claimed his life and that of another off-duty law enforcement officer who stopped to help.

Agent Carlos Wolff, a 36-year-old husband and father of two young children, lost control of his Acura SUV in December when he began reaching for his cell phone, according to newly disclosed police reports obtained by the Washington Post.

The documents had been withheld pending the outcome of an accident investigation. 

According to police, Wolff’s SUV veered across at least three lanes and struck a median wall, coming to rest while still partially blocking the fast lane.

Arson investigator Sander Cohen, 33, who happened to be driving on the same stretch of highway, stopped to help.

Both men got out of their vehicles and were on the shoulder of the road when another car struck them, hurling their bodies over the median and into the opposing lane.

Lane was pronounced dead at the scene. Wolf died soon after being rushed to the hospital.

None of the drivers involved in the accident had been drinking, police said.

The DEA is investigating a wild night in the Netherlands, where an intoxicated agent is accused of stripping naked, pooping in front of another agent’s hotel door and then scooping up the excrement and smearing in on the door and its handle.

Two sources told the Washington Examiner that the two agents, who were in Rotterdam for the 2018 International Drug Enforcement Conference in early April, were fighting with each other after an evening of heavy drinking. 

Agent Brian Shanahan is accused of getting his revenge outside the other agent’s hotel room.

The excrement caused on security guard to vomit.

“Shanahan took a dump in front of this agent’s door and smeared it all over it, including the door knob,” one DEA source said.

Mistrial Declared in Stabbing Death of Off-Duty Border Patrol Agent

A mistrial has been declared in the trial of a man accused of killing an off-duty Border Patrol agent.

The 12 jurors were unable to reach a unanimous verdict Friday in the murder trial of Hisaias Justo Lopez, who is accused of fatally stabbing Border Patrol Agent Isaac Morales on May 20, 2017, in the parking lot of the Union Draft House in East El Paso, the El Paso Times reports

Defense lawyers for Lopez argued Morales was drunk and the aggressor, forcing their client to defend himself.

Prosectors insisted Lopez started the fight unprovoked.

“I think there is no more deliberation,” the jury’s foreperson told the judge.

According to the El Paso Times, 10 jurors believed Lopez was guilty, and two thought he was not guilty.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether prosecutors would seek to retry Lopez.
