KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The man shot and killed Tuesday night by FBI agents in Belton was “a potentially violent extremist,” according to new information from the FBI.
FBI agents were executing a warrant Tuesday night in the 100 block of Wilbur Parish Circle and attempting to arrest Timothy Wilson, 36, who was armed during the encounter when he was ultimately shot and killed.
Wilson believed he was picking up a bomb, which didn’t actually exist, during Tuesday’s encounter, which was coordinated with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Missouri.
Marty Feuerborn witnessed the operation.
“I asked them what happened and he said, ‘No I can’t talk about it,’ and then I started looking out and it was like one of those shows on TV – black SUVS – it was federal you can tell,” Feuerborn said.
