Two U.S. Marshal Service deputies and an FBI agent are recovering from gunshot wounds after coming under fire at a motel in South Topeka, Kansas on Saturday.

The federal agents were trying to arrest Orlando Collins, a person of interest in a holdup and carjacking on Friday and a suspect in two other armed robberies, the Topeka Capital-Journal reports. 

An unidentified person was shot and killed inside the County Club Motel. An autopsy will determine whether it is Collins.

Authorities said the federal agents did not sustain life-threatening injuries.

A fire broke out during the gunfight and blazed on into the early morning hours Sunday.

“In Cincinnati, an attorney representing six air marshals asked a federal judge for a restraining order against TSA on Jan. 12, the website reported. “He said supervisors opened a disciplinary investigation against one client after she filed a sexual harassment lawsuit [1] (PDF) and then intimidated witnesses as they prepared to testify on the woman’s behalf.”
