A Chicago police officer and two federal agents were shot hours earlier in Chicago.
An Indiana police officer was shot and killed near a federal building Wednesday, hours after an officer in Chicago along with two federal agents were shot while working undercover.
Authorities in Terre Haute have not said what led to the shooting but were initially looking for a suspect believed to be driving a Ford F-150 truck with rear-end damage and was considered to be armed and dangerous, Fox affiliate WXIN-TV reported.
The suspect was later taken into custody and was undergoing surgery, the news outlet reported.
In a tweet, Terre Haute police Sgt. Ryan Adamson said an officer was “shot in the line of duty. Our officer passed away.”
Adamson declined to provide more details about the deadly shooting to Fox News. A request for comment from the Indiana State Police was not immediately returned.
The FBI said the officer was assigned to work with an agency task force but it was not clear in what capacity.
The shooting occurred hours after a Chicago police officer and agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) working undercover were shot around 5:50 a.m., authorities in Chicago said.
