ODESSA, Texas (AP) - An FBI agent has been treated after allegedly shooting himself during West Texas drug raids.

Messages left with the FBI in El Paso weren’t immediately returned Wednesday. An earlier FBI statement said an agent suffered injuries not believed to be life-threatening during Tuesday’s raids in Odessa.

The statement did not say how the agent was hurt.

KOSA-TV reports the agent accidentally shot himself in the foot. One woman at the scene, Shaniqua Starling, said she heard a gunshot, then saw the injured man limping down a ramp. Blood was on the porch and inside the residence.

Starling says agents helped get her and her child to safety. Nobody at that home was arrested.

The FBI raids led to several suspects arrested on charges of possession with intent to distribute drugs.
