Agents from the FBI shot and killed a man near the Walmart on Reisterstown Road Friday around rush hour, WJZ reported.

The shooting occurred in the 9700 block of Reisterstown Road, according to the Baltimore County Police Department.

According to WBAL, officers were called at 4:45 p.m. after federal agents shot a man who had been pulled over near a curb, then made a move to get away.

FBI agents fired at the man, who was driving a gray Infiniti SUV with New York plates, on the access road to the shopping center containing Walmart and Sam's Club, according to The Baltimore Sun.

A Baltimore County police officer was with the agents and did not fire, WBAL reported.

Nearby Garrison Forest School, which had dismissed for the day, alerted those on campus to shelter in place from 4:40 to 4:55 p.m., according to ABC 2 News.

The FBI and Baltimore County Police Department were reportedly collaborating on the investigation. Neither agency provided information about the deceased and why federal agents were involved.

Apparently, the man's family were left standing on the curb with one of the reporters, but wouldn't talk about it. 'Don't know if they were in the vehicle during the shooting, Moral: Don't try to dodge the Feds. They have the firepower, and will use it.

Kind of understandable why the F.B.I. was involved. The vehicle had out of state tags and evidently they must have been tailing him. After trying to make a run for it the situation could have ended up far worse if it turned into a high speed chase.

The man's family was present, and with a TV reporter afterward, though they wouldn't comment. They were not apparently detained by the FBI. Were they in the vehicle when the agents opened fire? Lucky they weren't hit, if so. Lucky no one else was hit in the area, which is often very busy. FBI needs to open up about why they fired under such conditions. Was the victim a clear and present danger to anyone else? If not, they should have held fire and pinned him with their vehicles to make an arrest.
