TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- The U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force was trying to capture Orlando Collins at the time of a shootout that injured three federal agents, the FBI confirms. A large blaze following the gunfire destroyed the motel where it occurred.

Collins had been linked to armed robberies that occurred as recently as the day before and was considered armed and dangerous.

The FBI said a body was found inside the motel room where Collins was believed to be, but they have not identified it.
