In brief


FBI inquiry


Investigation into the Jan. 10 accidental shooting of a federal SWAT team agent at Edmond's police training center is not finished, FBI spokesman Rick Raines said Thursday. The agent, who was shot in the leg, is home and doing well, Raines said. The name of the agent will not be released, he said. Raines called the shooting an accident during a training exercise involving 10 to 15 SWAT team members. “The shooting was not self-inflected,” Raines said. “Only agents were involved.” Federal agents were using Edmond's firing range, which is east of Midwest Boulevard on Danforth Road.



$2M winning ticket sold

Oklahoma Lottery officials say a winning $2 million Powerball ticket was sold at a convenience store in Oklahoma City. The lottery says the ticket was purchased at OnCue Express on NW 23. The winner matched five of five white ball numbers in Wednesday's night drawing. The prize was increased to $2 million because the purchaser bought the Power Play option for an extra dollar. The lottery says the winner has not yet come forward. Winners have 180 days from the day of the drawing to claim prizes at state Lottery headquarters in Oklahoma City.
