Off-duty FBI agent shot in Lakewood stickup

Lakewood -- An off-duty FBI agent was shot in chest this morning by an armed robber.

The 50-year-old senior agent was discharged from Lakewood Hospital this evening. The FBI won't release his name. He lives in Rocky River.

The agency is offering a $10,000 reward for information.

Scott Wilson, Cleveland FBI spokesman, gave this account of the incident: At about 3 a.m., the agent was driving a friend home. They had just stopped in the 2000 block of Wyandotte Avenue, not far from Madison Avenue.

Two men approached the car. One flung open the passenger'-side door, thrust a gun into the car and demanded money. The agent stomped on the gas pedal, but didn't get away before the man fired.


Looks like Cleveland should include an armed guard with their residential tax abatement's!
