At least one Las Vegas FBI agent started opening fire Thursday afternoon in a wealthy neighborhood, wounding one and prompting a large presence of federal and local law enforcement officers in the area — and neither the FBI or the Police are telling anyone what exactly happened.
The shooting occurred about 17 miles northwest of the Strip on the 5400 block of Ruffian Road, a small neighborhood with some homes valued at more than $1 million, Clark County property records show.
In a brief statement, Las Vegas FBI spokeswoman Sandy Breault told reporters near the neighborhood that the person who was shot was “currently receiving medical attention” but did not disclose further details regarding the person’s condition or the circumstances that led to the shooting.
Breault said the shooting will be investigated by the bureau’s inspection division.
Citing the FBI’s ongoing investigation into the shooting, Breault declined to release more information or take questions.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department assisted the FBI at the scene, but police spokesman Misael Parra referred all questions to the FBI.
