WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Wilmington police investigating an apparent attempted carjacking of a federal Homeland Security Investigation special agent say no charges have been filed.

Authorities say the agent was parking a government vehicle at a downtown parking garage Friday morning when a man tried to take his car.

Police say the agent fired one round from his agency-issued firearm in self-defense.

The alleged apparent carjacker fled, but Wilmington police later took a man into custody in connection with the incident.

Officers said late Friday that an investigation showed that the actions of the man detained by police and confirmed to have been involved did not rise to the charge of attempted carjacking.

Police say the the man has been released.
