PARK FOREST, Ill. (AP) _ The FBI says two of its agents were shot and wounded while trying to serve an arrest warrant at a suburban Chicago home, and that the man they were seeking there is dead.

The agency didn’t release the name of the dead man or say if he shot the agents, whose injuries it says aren’t life-threatening. It also didn’t say if the agents killed the man.

FBI spokesman Garrett Croon says the agents were serving the warrant at a Park Forest home Tuesday morning and that the situation had been resolved by 9 a.m.

The Park Forest-Chicago Heights School District told students during the incident to remain home, but says it later got the all-clear from the local police and resumed busing students to school.
