McGrath was taken to the hospital after being hurt in the shooting at the 10700 block of Kingston Pike at Lovell Road in Knoxville. The incident happened around 6:30 p.m. and is under review, according to the FBI.

“The FBI is reviewing an agent-involved shooting which occurred at approximately 6:30 p.m. on Monday, April 3, 2023,” the bureau wrote in a statement.

“During the arrest, the subject, Roy McGrath, sustained injury and was transported to the hospital,” it added.

The statement went on to note that the FBI takes all shooting matters seriously. It said the incident was being investigated by the FBI’s Inspection Division.

McGrath became wanted after he failed to appear in court in Baltimore on March 13. A reward offered by federal authorities for information on the situation reached $20,000 at one point.
