FBI agent wounded in Kansas gunfight still hospitalized
KANSAS CITY (AP) — One of three federal agents injured during a fiery weekend shootout at a Kansas motel is still hospitalized, and authorities are trying to identify the body found inside the suspect's charred motel room.
FBI spokeswoman Bridget Patton in Kansas City, Missouri, says the agent was in good condition Monday afternoon at an unspecified hospital. Two deputy federal marshals were treated at a hospital and release after Saturday night's confrontation in Topeka.
The FBI says fugitive task force members trying to arrest robbery suspect Orlando J. Collins at the motel came under fire. A blaze then erupted in the room where authorities later found a body.
Patton says a local fire marshal and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are investigating what caused the fire.
