Federal agents shoot 2 wanted fugitives at Fort Worth apartment complex

There is a large law enforcement presence in Fort Worth after federal agents shot two fugitives they were after at an apartment complex.

It happened Thursday around 4:30 p.m. at an apartment complex near Randol Mill Road, just south I-30.

One of the men shot was taken to a hospital by an ATF agent. The other one escaped while injured and remains on the run at this time.

Investigators have been combing through an upstairs apartment, taking photographs and dropping evidence markers. 

ATF agents arrived on scene for an investigation where investigators say the agents were then put in danger and shots were fired. 

Investigators seemed to be centered around a vehicle in the parking lot with bullet holes in the driver’s side door window. It’s unclear who this vehicle belongs to. 

Fort Worth police says ATF agents part of a special task force shot two male suspects.

One of the suspects was taken to the hospital in one of the task force member’s vehicle. His condition is unknown.

A second male suspect was also shot. He was able to get away from the scene on foot. 

Investigators have not said whether they believe that the suspect is armed or whether either of the suspects fired at law enforcement.

Shortly after the shooting, a manhunt was underway. 

Fort Worth police and Arlington police then assisted on scene where K-9 units were brought in to search a wooded area behind the apartment complex. 

Investigators searched for the suspect on the ground and by air up until sunset. 

There are no reports of officers injured. 

Once it was dark, investigators seemed to regroup, and ATF took over. 

We are still waiting on an official press conference as ATF is the lead agency.
