The Texas FBI agent who shot and killed his neighbor’s 3 pound Chihuahua named “Sassy” with a pellet rifle in the Waco, Tex. area in 2008, is no longer with the FBI.

Erik Vasys, an FBI spokesman in San Antonio, on Tuesday confirmed that agent Leslie Ledger, 41, was “no longer an employee of the FBI.”  He declined to discuss the circumstances behind Ledger’s departure several weeks ago. Ledger had been under internal investigation for the shooting, and had been  expected to face some type of discipline, in all likelihood ranging from a suspension to a firing.

“Personnel actions are matters between the FBI and the employee themselves,” Vasys said in a statement. “As such, the Federal Privacy Act prohibits any further comment by the FBI on these matters.”

BUFFALO — An FBI agent was shot early this morning, apparently by another agent, while executing an arrest warrant during a roundup of major drug trafficking suspects on the city’s East Side.

Police would not reveal the agent’s name, the extent of his injuries or his condition after he was shot about 6 a.m. while trying to make an arrest at a house on Coit Street.

But two law enforcement officials who know the agent told The Buffalo News that he was in stable condition after suffering a gunshot wound to his shoulder that was not life-threatening.

The wounded agent was seen sitting up, wearing an oxygen mask, as he was taken by ambulance to Erie County Medical Center, where he was reportedly visited by his wife.
