FBI Agent Shot & Killed

The FBI says an agent killed during an encounter with bank robbery suspects in New Jersey Thursday was apparently killed by another agent's "accidental discharge."

Agent Barry Lee Bush was assigned to the Newark office. He was part of a team of agents that confronted three suspects near a bank in Readington.

The suspects were believed responsible for four robberies. The FBI says in two of those robberies, assaults weapons were fired inside the bank. But the FBI says the suspects did not fire their weapons during Thursday's confrontation. Two assault rifles and a handgun were recovered. Two suspects were captured, but a third (Francisco Herrera-Genao) remains at large.

Special-Agent-in-Charge Pedro Ruiz, from the FBI's Newark office, says he doesn't know yet how many shots were fired. He also declined to elaborate about what prompted the agents to start shooting.
