The suspect “emerged from his vehicle with a weapon and was engaged by law enforcement”, the FBI statement continued.

The unidentified suspect was taken to a local hospital and his condition wasn’t immediately known.

The FBI said it is reviewing the incident.

“The review process is thorough and objective, and is conducted as expeditiously as possible under the circumstances,” the FBI said.
