PHOENIX (AP) — A Drug Enforcement Administration special agent who was shot and killed by an Amtrak train passenger in Arizona has been identified.

According to two people familiar with the matter, Special Agent Mike Garbo was killed Monday during an inspection in a train car stopped in Tucson.

The DEA is expected to formally release his identity Tuesday.

A second agent and a Tucson police officer were wounded in the shooting at the station in the city’s downtown and sent panicked passengers running.

A regional task force was checking for illegal money, weapons and drugs.
