— An FBI agent was shot in the leg Thursday during a training exercise at the Edmond Police Department training center.

FBI spokesman Rick Rains did not identify the agent but said he was listed in good condition.

The injured agent was taken by medical helicopter to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City. Family members have been notified, Rains said.

The FBI's emergency medical technicians at the scene administered help until he could be airlifted, Rains said.

The shooting occurred about 3:25 p.m. during a training exercise, Rains said.

Federal agents are investigating what happened at the firing range, which is east of Midwest Boulevard on Danforth Road.
