Man Fatally Shot by FBI Agent Serving Search Warrants in Compton

COMPTON, Calif. (AP) — The FBI says one of its agents fatally shot a man during a confrontation while warrants were served at a home in Los Angeles County last week.

Agency spokeswoman Laura Eimiller says the shooting happened Thursday night when an FBI SWAT team arrived at the residence in Compton looking for a parolee-at-large.

Eimiller says the agent fired his weapon after a confrontation with a man. She says he was treated at the scene and then taken to a hospital, where he was declared dead.

The FBI did not identify the man or confirm whether he was the subject of the warrants. However Eimiller said a parolee had been arrested at the home and was in custody.

The Los Angeles Times reported Saturday that no agents were injured and a gun was recovered. The shooting is under investigation.
