“One federal agent was killed and another is in critical condition following a shooting on an Amtrak train in Tucson, Arizona. The shooting broke out as the agents were searching for guns and drugs. Officials said the violence started as a confrontation on the train between two DEA agents and a [prospective looting victim]. ‘They were checking for illegal guns, money, drugs [to steal], this is something they do, as I said, routinely,’ Tucson Police Chief Chris Magnus said. … Special Agent in Charge Sherry Oz said that in addition to the agent that died and the agent in critical condition, a task force officer is also in stable condition. The suspected shooter was found dead on the train and a second suspect was taken into custody, Magnus said.” (10/04/21)
