Two FBI agents were shot while helping police execute a search warrant near Ferguson early Wednesday, Reuters reports.
The FBI said the shooting was unrelated to the unrest in Ferguson, where protesters have been gathering for months after a white police officer shot an unarmed black teen.
“The incident is not directly related to the Ferguson protests,” FBI spokeswoman Rebecca Wu said.
One agent was shot in the leg and the other was shot in the shoulder.
The injuries are not life-threatening, the bureau said.
