TOPEKA, Kan., April 24 (UPI) — A shootout in Kansas left three federal agents injured and a motel burned to the ground, authorities said.
U.S. Marshals from the Fugitive Task Force came under fire as they approached a Topeka motel door, looking for fugitive Orlando J. Collins on Saturday night.
Collins, 28, was wanted for robbery-related charges, the FBI said.
The two marshals and the FBI agent were shot, but are expected to recover. A fourth agent received a leg injury as well, the FBI said.
A fire began in the room of the shooter and “eventually spread to the entire building,” the FBI said, burning for more than three hours.
An unidentified body believed to be Collins was found in the room, but no one else was injured, the FBI said.
