ARIZONA – During a training exercise on Thursday, an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) agent lost their life due to an inadvertent shooting by another agent, ABC15 reported.
The Federal Bureau of Prisons (FBOP) said they’re actively looking into a “shooting incident” that occurred at the Federal Correctional Institutional (FCI) Phoenix firing range on Thursday afternoon. However, the FBOP hasn’t been able to provide additional specifics at this time.
The FBOP said that the gun range was in use by multiple federal agencies during the occurrence.
The IRS confirmed that an agent had been transported to the hospital following the occurrence, but regrettably did not survive.
An investigation is underway.
