The FBI said that “an unidentified male armed with a knife” entered the Edmund S. Muskie Federal Building in Augusta and “allegedly physically assaulted one of the Federal Protective Service guards.”
“Another Federal Protective Service guard then shot the subject,” the FBI said in a statement, adding that the suspect had been transported to a hospital.
“There is no known threat to public safety and no one inside the building was hurt.”
