FARRAGUT, Tenn. (WATE) — Federal agents paid a visit to a home in Farragut on Tuesday as part of an investigation. Authorities later said the special agents attempting to serve a court-authorized warrant found a person who had been wounded by a self-inflicted gunshot.
The person, who has not been identified by authorities, later died from their injuries. No further details were available.
“The incident is subject to an internal review by local and federal authorities,” an FBI spokesman said late Tuesday in an email. “Since this incident is currently under review, no further details will be released at this time.”
An FBI spokesman said Tuesday agents were at a home in the 400 block of Wyndham Lane as part of an Internal Revenue Service investigation but declined to explain further. More information is expected soon.
About half a dozen law enforcement officers, some in plain clothes, were seen entering the home and carrying out large bags.
Knox County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit was also at the scene.
A stack of empty boxes leaned against the home’s front porch. A locksmith vehicle with the FBI logo was seen at the home as well.
