PHILADELPHIA – A federal drug agent was recovering at a local hospital after being shot in the calf in Philadelphia while working with local authorities to carry out a search warrant.
A dog attacked the officers serving the warrant at a home in the Roxborough neighborhood and police fired at the dog to stop the threat, said Bryan Doherty, a Drug Enforcement Administration spokesman.
One of those bullets struck a DEA agent in the calf.
Doherty says the bullet wasn't lodged in the agent's body.
The agent's name wasn't immediately released.
