VIDEO: Off-Duty FBI Agent Fires Shots, Foils Suspected Los Angeles Kidnapping

An FBI agent shot at a man in the Canoga Park neighborhood of Los Angeles after it appeared that he was trying to kidnap a woman and force her into his car, law enforcement authorities said late Wednesday.

The man left the scene and led officers on a high speed chase across the San Fernando Valley and into Malibu where he was taken into custody around 9 p.m.

Los Angeles police told the Los Angeles Times the incident began Wednesday evening in an L.A. Fitness parking lot near De Soto Avenue and Nordoff Street. The man allegedly fired at least one shot at an off-duty officer, said Officer Bruce Borihanh of the Los Angeles Police Department. It was not immediately clear whether that officer was the FBI agent.

Laura Eimiller, an FBI spokeswoman in Los Angeles, said the agent fired his weapon after witnessing the suspected kidnapping. She did not have any additional details.
