It was just Scott S. Smith’s third day as special agent in charge of the FBI’s Pittsburgh office when a student slashed and stabbed classmates in a hallway at Franklin Regional High School last week.

“It was a horrific incident,” Smith told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette for a story. “Behind the scenes, though, there’s a lot of investigative activity, evidence collection, witness interviews that have to be done, and they have to be done then.”

Smith allotted 20 agents to the investigation, which includes interviews and evidence reconstruction.

“He was battle-tested in his very first week,” said U.S. attorney David Hickton, who was on the scene with Mr. Smith.

Smith is in charge of 145 FBI agents, in a addition to other support staff and local law enforcement.

Arthur Lewis, the first African American acting deputy administrator of the DEA, rose to prominence after starting his career on the hardscrabble streets of Harlam as an undercover agent.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Lewis is credited with breaking down racial barriers and winning a legal battle in the 1970s to improve treatment of black and female agents.

It was a tough journey that spanned nearly three decades and involved some of the most dangerous assignments, Lewis, 84, told the Inquirer during an interview at his home in Cherry Hill.

“It was hard work and it was difficult,” Lewis recalled. “But to me, it was very worthwhile.”

Added Lewis Rice, a former special agent, “He’s a living legend, a legend for all ages.”
