LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Authorities said a fugitive and an FBI agent were wounded by gunfire during a chase that started when a criminal apprehension team tried to make an arrest in Las Vegas.
Metro Police Officer Laura Meltzer said the suspect was hospitalized with serious wounds after his arrest about 3 p.m. Tuesday in a neighborhood northeast of downtown Las Vegas.
FBI Agent Patrick Turner said the wounded agent was wearing a protective vest and was treated at the hospital for his injuries and released later in the evening.
FBI agents and Metro police swarmed the neighborhood where the shootout happened just off Desert Rose Golf Course.
Neither the fugitive nor the agent was immediately identified and neighbors said they heard maybe 15 gunshots.
Residents said the shootout in their neighborhood is a wake up call.
