The agent and task force officer were transporting the people to the William M. Colmer Federal Courthouse when the altercation occurred. The task force officer shot the person involved in the altercation, according to a news release from the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation.

Both the DEA agent and the other person involved in the altercation were taken to a local hospital for treatment. Their conditions were not made available.
