A U.S. Marshal was killed and a federal officer was wounded when they were fired upon while serving a warrant.

From Fox News:

A U.S. marshal was reportedly killed and a federal officer was wounded when gunfire erupted during the service of a warrant.

The U.S. marshal died at the hospital, PennLive.com reported, though it’s unclear how he was injured.

Another York City Police officer assigned to the U.S. Marshal’s Task Force was shot in the incident. He was taken to the hospital and his injuries are said to be not life threatening, FOX43 reported.

Little information was released at the morning news conference, but Dauphin County District Attorney Fran Chardo confirmed there were shots fired at a Harrisburg home around 6:10 a.m. Neighbors also told WHTM they heard dozens of shots fired.

Chardo said there was a “use of force” in the incident. The shooting suspect was “not at large” and there was no danger to the public at this time.

A news conference with more details was scheduled for 2 p.m. ET Thursday.
