Man killed in alleged carjacking attempt of FBI agents

LOS ANGELES - One man was shot to death and another wounded after they allegedly attempted a carjacking against two FBI agents who were conducting surveillance, officials said.

The FBI agents apparently were targeted randomly and the incident remains under investigation.

FBI officials Friday declined to identify the slain suspect pending the notification of his relatives. The identity of the wounded suspect also was being withheld, along with the names of two others who were arrested because they are minors.

Both agents were assigned to the FBI's Los Angeles field office. The agency did not disclose their names.

The bureau said in a statement that the two agents were in a parked vehicle in Reseda during an investigation of a violation of the Hobbs Act, which concerns extortion and robbery.

The agents were "accosted by four young male subjects, at least one of whom was armed" about midnight and an altercation ensued when the four suspects allegedly tried to take the agents' vehicle, FBI officials said.

Authorities did not say how many shots were fired or how many individuals had guns.

The wounded suspect was hospitalized in stable condition. The other two suspects were in the custody of the Los Angeles Police Department.

FBI officials said a special team will investigate the shooting while local officials will consider criminal charges against the suspects.

But aren't the ordinary citizens of Los Angeles denied the right to carry weapons with which to defend themselves against carjacking attempts? Do carjackers only target F.B.I. agents there?

I'm happy that the F.B.I. agents survived. I'd be happier if people who are not F.B.I. agents were given the same opportunity to survive.

A video would have been great. I would have loved to see the look on their faces when they realized the two sheeple in the car were armed and ready to shoot them. Too bad the rest of the honest citizens of ********** don't have the same option.

The agents were accosted by four young male subjects,

I wonder if VPC (http://www.vpc.org/) will count the dead and wounded as more "children" victimized by "gun violence."

There's no need to wonder. They would, and will.

After all, if they never had guns with which to initiate the crime, the feds never would have shot them. And that's why LA needs to ban them a second time...?
