Two FBI Agents Shot in St. Louis: Reports
MOSCOW, November 26 (Sputnik) — The FBI confirmed on Wednesday that two of its agents were shot in St. Louis on Wednesday and stated that the incident was not related to the protests in Ferguson.

“Two agents were shot while executing an arrest warrant in St. Louis. Injuries not life threatening & incident unrelated to recent protests,” the FBI said on Twitter.

Earlier on Wednesday, two FBI agents were shot in St. Louis County as they were responding to a situation where a person had been barricaded inside a home.

Meanwhile, a new wave of violent protests has swept over the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson as a grand jury chose not to press charges against white police officer Darren Wilson who fatally shot unarmed African-American teenager Michael Brown in August.
