An FBI agent was in critical condition Thursday night in the Texas panhandle after he was accidentally shot by a fellow law enforcement officer, Breitbart reports.
Special Agent Mike Orndorff was helping carry out a warrant when he was shot by an officer with the Texas Department of Public Safety.
“The preliminary information indicates that the FBI agent was accidentally shot by a Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Criminal Investigations Division (CID) special agent,” Sgt. Witt wrote in a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas Friday night. “DPS Texas Rangers, DPS CID special agents and FBI agents were all on scene as part of the investigation.”
The suspect wanted in the warrant was arrested on undisclosed charges.
