GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- Police say an FBI agent on vacation was robbed at gunpoint in downtown Greenville and shot at the suspects as they drove off.

Authorities say the agent was with two other people Sunday night outside the Peace Center when two men in ski masks got out of a vehicle and demanded money.

Police say the victims gave the robbers cash, credit cards and cell phones.

Investigators say the FBI agent fired at the suspects as they left.

Police think the suspects picked the victims at random.

Authorities say no injuries were reported and no arrests have been made.
