    Man killed in alleged carjacking attempt of FBI agents

    LOS ANGELES - One man was shot to death and another wounded after they allegedly attempted a carjacking against two FBI agents who were conducting surveillance, officials said.

    The FBI agents apparently were targeted randomly and the incident remains under investigation.

    FBI officials Friday declined to identify the slain suspect pending the notification of his relatives. The identity of the wounded suspect also was being withheld, along with the names of two others who were arrested because they are minors.

    Both agents were assigned to the FBI's Los Angeles field office. The agency did not disclose their names.

    The bureau said in a statement that the two agents were in a parked vehicle in Reseda during an investigation of a violation of the Hobbs Act, which concerns extortion and robbery.

    The agents were "accosted by four young male subjects, at least one of whom was armed" about midnight and an altercation ensued when the four suspects allegedly tried to take the agents' vehicle, FBI officials said.

    Authorities did not say how many shots were fired or how many individuals had guns.

    The wounded suspect was hospitalized in stable condition. The other two suspects were in the custody of the Los Angeles Police Department.

    FBI officials said a special team will investigate the shooting while local officials will consider criminal charges against the suspects.

    That reminds me of a "war story" from years ago.

    I was up in New York City working with the Secret Service or the convention. At the time there was apopular scam going around, you'd stop at a red light and suddenly the car in front of you would back into you.... And of course the driver and his "witness" would get out and of course say you rear ended him, trying to settle for cash on the spot.

    Well we were in a USSS car, two agents, and us two techs, in the middle of Manhattan when this happened to us! By the time the two dummies got bach to our car both agents had their service weapons out and ready. Made for a really interesting evening, and those two jerks probably didn't drive again for quite a while.
