A Las Vegas FBI employee was arrested on Tuesday in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for shooting at a police officer.
 
Around 1:18 a.m., officers responded to several 9-1-1 calls about a man who was brandishing a gun inside a Planet Fitness. The suspect shot at a police sergeant as he was attempting to make contact with the suspect.
 
Seconds later, the 35-year-old suspect was located in a parking lot at a nearby mall where he was arrested at gunpoint. No injuries were reported, and no shots were fired by police personnel.
 
Grand Rapids police are investigating the incident. The Detroit FBI released the following statement:
 
The FBI takes allegations of misconduct very seriously.  We are aware of the matter involving the recent arrest of an FBI Special Agent and are fully cooperating with the Grand Rapids Police Department. This matter has been referred to the FBI’s Internal Investigations Section in Washington, DC, as well as the Department of Justice’s Office of Inspector General. Because this is an ongoing investigation, we will not comment further
