NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – An FBI agent was shot and injured in Brooklyn on Saturday, according to police.

Gunfire rang out near the intersection of East 91st Street and Seaview Avenue in Canarsie around 3:30 p.m., police said. 

Police told WABC-TV that two undercover FBI agents were sitting in a car when shots were fired from a vehicle driving by, and the agents returned fire.

The agent was shot in the shoulder, according to police. 

He was taken to Kings County Hospital and is expected to survive, police said. 

Officials say a vehicle with bullet holes was left at a body shop, and that one of the suspects drove another vehicle to a nearby hospital.

The FBI told the Associated Press that two suspects were in custody Saturday evening.
