Queens Shooting Involving Off-Duty FBI Agent Under Investigation

Police are investigating a shooting involving an off-duty FBI agent in South Ozone Park, Queens.

The agent and his wife were awakened in their home in South Ozone Park 5:15 a.m. today, as suspected robbers attempted to break into their car to steal a radio, according to sources.

The officer fired his weapon, but sources say he was unsure whether he had actually shot anyone.

A short time later, a man with a gunshot wound to the back arrived at nearby Brookdale University Hospital.

The wounded man is being treated but so far has not been arrested. Sources say it appears he may have been connected to the attempted break-in.

Residents nearby were stunned to learn of the incident in what they describe as a usually safe neighborhood.

"Sometimes I work till eight, nine o'clock at night and I get off the bus and no fear. There is fear now, though," said one local.

The FBI is not commenting on the shooting.
