An armed man was shot and wounded after being confronted by at least one FBI agent outside CIA headquarters on Monday, authorities said.

The incident happened around 6 p.m., the FBI said in a statement, describing it as a “shootout involving an agent.”

The suspect “got out of his vehicle with a weapon and was hired by law enforcement,” the FBI statement continued.

The unidentified suspect was taken to a local hospital and his condition was not immediately known.

The FBI said it was investigating the incident.

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

Several media organizations reported than filming followed a “Impasse of several hours” with the authorities.
