An FBI spokeswoman says two special agents have been shot in St. Louis County, but the incident is not related to the Ferguson protests.

Rebecca Wu, a spokeswoman with the FBI St. Louis Division, says the agents were assisting the University City Police Department execute an arrest warrant at 2:53 a.m. Wednesday.

One agent was shot in the shoulder and the other agent was shot in the leg. Wu says neither injury is life-threatening.

The flashing lights of police cars, fire trucks and ambulances could be seen near the scene of the shooting, which took place about five miles south of Ferguson.
