I heard the same, the perp was shot also, during the trial of arrest of 3 suspected terrorist or something like that on KFWB news L.A. This is subject to revision.

Federal Agent Shot in Detroit The Associated Press Friday, Sept. 21, 2001; 2:16 p.m. EDT DETROIT –– A federal agent was shot Friday in a federal office building, police said. The suspected shooter also was shot, police Officer Robert Carlton said. The agent was taken by ambulance to Detroit Receiving Hospital. A second man was taken out of the McNamara federal office building on a stretcher with his neck in a brace and a pile of bandages on his abdomen. An ambulance left under police escort to an undisclosed hospital. The area was cordoned off with police tape. The conditions of those shot were not immediately known. A witness, Joel Vander Linden of Warren, said he was waiting in line at the metal detectors when he heard a man behind him "complaining loudly ... cussing." Vander Linden said as he going to the elevators, he heard a "boom," but was rushed out the door before he could see anything else. The shooting occurred two blocks from the federal courthouse where a hearing was held earlier in the day for three men arrested in Detroit during the FBI investigation of the Sept. 11 terror attacks. A U.S. magistrate ordered the three detained, saying they presented a flight risk.

Hmm, I wonder if it was the trial of those involved in previous bombings or hearings for the current terrorists. Could this be considered an attack by foreign country on U.S. LEOs.

Was this a Jack Ruby wannabe? Thought he could get in and kill a bombing suspect? What on earth was he carrying? Why would a federal agent NOT be wearing body armor?

Damn! ClickOnDetriot.com is reporting the Fed Agent did die from his wounds! [:(]

I wonder if this will give them momentum to move to disarm us...now more than ever, acts such as this will be amplified.

It was most likely a pistol. Why in the world would he attack a LEO at a Federal building? Is he some sort of anti-government militia nutjob? Whatever he is, he's proven he's stupid. Another family to pray for [:(] I do not like this. God Bless Texas

I'm afraid it's probably a little different from the Jack Ruby thing.There are alot of Americans who are on the edge and want these people lynched or shot quick.That's stupid because these guys need to be tortured for information until they give up all of the info on their cell and the contact for another cell but questioning by the FBI will have to suffice.I just hope that more of this crap doesn't happen and screw up our gunrights.

FBI Investigating Shooting At Federal Building DETROIT, 4:38 p.m. EDT September 21, 2001 - A man allegedly walked into the lobby of the McNamara Federal Building on Michigan Avenue and shot a federal protective services officer. The officer has died from his injuries. The gunman was also taken to a local hospital after being shot, but his condition is unknown at this time. A witness said that a white male walked into the federal building at about 1:30 p.m. and shot the officer. "He just walked up and started shooting," David Edwards said. Dawn Clenney of the Detroit FBI said during an afternoon press conference that the man entered the building carrying a bag. As he approached the security area, a guard asked him what was in the bag. Clenney said that the man pulled a handgun out the bag and started shooting. The FBI is located in this building. The perimeters of the building, at 477 Michigan Ave., are now closed off including Michigan Avenue at First and Cass. The FBI is considering the building a crime scene and has closed off the building. It has been partially evacuated. All federal buildings have been on heightened security after the Sept. 11 attacks, but the gunman entered the building and began shooting before he had entered the McNamara's security checkpoints located about 20 to 30-feet away from the front door. The FBI will be holding a press conference about this shooting this afternoon. Also, many questions loom as to the possible connection too a trial going on a few blocks away at the Theodore Levin U.S. Courthouse for three men arrested for having false documentation. The men may have been associated with Nabil Al-Marabh who was taken into custody Wednesday night in Justice, Ill., a Chicago suburb. Authorities are questioning him about possible links to Osama bin Laden. At this time, authorities say that there is no indication that the shooting may be linked to the hearings.

MI just got CCW. Wonder if this was one of those 'useful idiots' doing his part to make sure it goes away.
