Two FBI agents were shot early Wednesday morning in north St. Louis County.

Rebecca Wu, an FBI spokeswoman, says the shooting happened at approximately 2:53 a.m. She says two special agents were shot while helping the University City Police Department execute an arrest warrant at a home on North Hanley Road, near Monroe Avenue.

Wu says one agent was shot in the shoulder, the other was shot in the leg. Their injuries are non-life threatening. She says this incident is not related to the unrest in Ferguson.

Police officials say someone is barricaded inside the home.

At least two dozen police and other emergency vehicles responded to the shooting.

Police are looking into the possibility this could be related to an incident late Monday in University City where a police officer was shot in his chest.
