Shots fired during FBI raid in Pr. George's Co.

Posted: Updated:
DISTRICT HEIGHTS, Md. -

It was chaos in a Prince George's County neighborhood Thursday morning.

An FBI swat team served a search warrant at a home in District Heights.

Multiple shots were fired, although apparently, no one was hit.

All day, there's been a massive FBI evidence team at a house on Kipling Parkway.

They were here to both finish executing a search warrant, and investigate why multiple shots were fired at one of the residents of the home in the living room.

Around 630 am a Baltimore based FBI swat team went through the front door of a home at 6907 Kipling Parkway in District Heights, Maryland. This was part of a series of coordinated raids at multiple locations in DC and Maryland. At the time of entry someone discharged a weapon at this scene. The bullet apparently struck no one. The FBI is not saying who fired, but a person who was inside the house told us off camera that 5 to 6 bullets were fired by an FBI agent in the living room. The target: an 18 year old woman whom the agent apparently thought was holding a weapon.

The FBI said a woman inside the house was injured and taken away by ambulance. They say she apparently suffered only an abrasion, possibly only from a fall. She has been discharged from the hospital.

Perhaps because of the number of large investigators on the scene, the FBI was quick to disclose that the search warrant was not connected to any kind of counter-terrorism operation. An indictment has now been unsealed in connection to this raid.

A grand jury in DC has charged 5 men with multiple felonies in connection with the alleged trafficking of heroin.

No one was arrested at this scene, but 4 of the 5 have been arrested at other locations.

One suspect remains on the loose.
