FBI Makes Rare Move to Fire Agent for Shooting Unarmed Suspect

In a rare move, the FBI is trying to fire an agent after he intentionally shot a suspect.

The New York Times reports that the FBI concluded the off-duty agent violated bureau policy for shooting an unarmed suspect who was accused of breaking into a Lexus in Queens.

According to internal reports obtained by the Times, the agent shot the man from a second-story window, striking him in the back.

The bureau accused the agent, Navin Kalicharan, of violating its lethal force policy, which permits agents to shoot their weapons only when there is an imminent risk of death or serious bodily harm.

Kalicharan is contesting the dismissal.
