Off-Duty FBI Officer Came Under Fire After Car Crash, Fired Back, Police Say

By Steve Neavling

An off-duty FBI police officer was driving on D.C. Route 295 when he exchanged gunfire with the occupant of another car following a two-vehicle collision. 

The collision occurred on Saturday afternoon in Northeast Washington D.C., where the officer’s Hyundai Elantra collided with another car, The Washington Post reports.

The FBI officer said he pursued the other vehicle when the driver refused to stop. That’s when he said an occupant with a handgun shot at him several times. 

After the occupant fired again, the officer said he returned fire. 

The FBI officer, who has not been identified, was not injured. 

The shooting remains under investigation, and as of Wednesday, the occupants of the other car have not been identified. 

Armed Men Impersonating DEA Agents Kicked Open Door of Honolulu Home, Terrifying the Occupant

Three armed men wearing ski masks falsely claimed they were DEA agents and kicked open the door of a Honolulu home, a terrified occupant explained. 

“I ran into the living room where three guys were at the door waving guns claiming they were from the DEA,” the victim told KHON-2

The encounter happened around 8 p.m. Sunday. The house belonged to the victim’s friend, who was not home at the time.

“After about three or four kicks, they were decent sized guys, it just exploded inwards and they just walked right over top of it,” the victim said.

They demanded access to the safe, but the occupant didn’t know the combination. 

“They said, give me the combination in three seconds or you’re gone, and I was like I don’t know it.”

After pleading for his life, the suspects fled with the victim’s phone and wallet. 

The DEA said its agents don’t bust into homes with ski masks and jackets on.

“We’ll use patrol cars when we can to identify ourselves, and we make the markings clear that say DEA and police. We announce ourselves as DEA. If someone is suspicious, we can provide a second form of identification when it’s a safe point to do so,” Megan Fila, DEA group supervisor, explained.

Police are still looking for the thieves.
