Man shot by FBI agent outside CIA headquarters after allegedly pulling out a weapon

Source: CBS NEWS

BY OLIVIA GAZIS

A man was shot and wounded outside the Central Intelligence Agency's headquarters in McLean, Virginia, on Monday after emerging from his vehicle with a weapon, according to the FBI's Washington Field Office. The CIA said the suspect did not breach the compound.


The FBI said in a statement that it was reviewing an "agent-involved shooting" that occurred at roughly 6 p.m. local time.

"An individual involved in a security incident outside Central Intelligence Agency Headquarters in McLean, VA, emerged from his vehicle with a weapon and was engaged by law enforcement officers," the FBI's statement said.




The suspect was transported to a hospital for medical attention, according to the FBI. It did not provide any further details about the shooting, though it said hours earlier that agents had responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle outside CIA headquarters.

1. That's About Five Miles From Me

Somehow I missed that story last night.

It's also where the Pakistani shooter killed several people in 1993.

2. So, the right to bear arms and show them off to...

local police gets you a wave and a smile, but if you do it in front of an FBI agent you get shot. What does that say about local police?

I've been very surprised that the 2nd amendment people who parade around with their guns haven't been shot more often. I believe that if I were a peace keeping officer, and a person, or group of people presented weapons in my presence, I would place my hand on my weapon and demand that they explain themselves - at a minimum. I think that before all of this is over there will be more stories like this one.

The fool thought that he could actually present a weapon to an FBI officer in front of a CIA office. That's very bold in my opinion.

6. I believe the take on this, whether the shooting was justified or not, is the fact that the guy was

wounded, HE WAS NOT KILLED, and it is something that I have been saying for a while. Why do police shoot to kill? They are trained and should have skills that permit them to stop the person without killing them, .the worst part is that police kill even people who do not have a weapon.

9. They might have tried to kill him.

As far as skills and training go, I think shooting a gun out someone's hand is Hollywood stuff.

One can die from a gunshot to the leg.

I hate firearms.

7. They've got M-4s, M-16s, AR-15s, Ak-47s, SK-47s and you've got a Glock or a .38 and a Taser ...

... which thug are you disarming first? Oh yeah, and you're outnumbered a 100 to 1, and at the same time you know a significant percentage of your fellow officers support the thugs.

10. I'm Just Curious Why An FBI Agent Was At CIA

As I understand it, having never been to that compound, the CIA provides its own security.

13. It Has To Be

Who in their right mind would pull up to CIA headquarters and brandish a gun? I wouldn't pull out a weapon in that whole neighborhood. And yes, I've been there...the neighborhood, not the headquarters.

Man shot by FBI outside CIA headquarters has died

By Matt Zapotosky
May 4, 2021 at 5:30 p.m. EDT

The person shot by the FBI outside CIA headquarters Monday evening has died, the bureau announced Tuesday.

The FBI confirmed the death in a one-paragraph statement that offered no new details on what occurred.

Jennifer Smith, administrator for the northern district of the Virginia Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, said an autopsy determined the man, Roy Gordon Cole, died of gunshot wounds of the “torso and upper extremities,” and the manner of death was found to be homicide. She said she could not release how many times Cole had been shot.

Efforts to locate Cole’s family members were not immediately successful, though Smith said the man’s relatives had been told of the death.

15. Here's more:

“The man, Roy Gordon Cole, was known to the CIA because he had tried to drive into its heavily guarded facility before, officials said, adding that there were questions about his mental state.”
