SEBRING, Fla. -- Authorities in central Florida say two U.S. Marshals have been shot and wounded while attempting to serve an arrest warrant in a drug investigation.
Highlands County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Nell Hays says the shooting happened about 6 a.m. Wednesday at a home in Sebring. Hays described the marshals’ injuries as not life-threatening.
Hays says the suspects sought in the home were part of a broader investigation that included a number of other arrests in the county. She says the suspects involved in the shooting have been taken into custody.
Hays says the names of the suspects and the charges they face will be released later.
