BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say an FBI agent was shot during a roundup of drug suspects at a house in Buffalo.
The Buffalo News reports the agent was shot at 6 a.m. Thursday. The paper says he was sitting up when he was taken to a hospital.
FBI spokesman Earl Gould did not return a call seeking details about the shooting.
The agent was part of a group of law enforcement officers rounding up drug and money-laundering suspects.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph Guerra says the agent was shot after arriving at a house to execute an arrest warrant.
