Federal agents were involved in a shootout early Tuesday as they tried to serve a search warrant at the Little Rock home of the person who leads the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport, authorities said.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said agents were trying to serve the warrant just after 6 a.m. at a home in west Little Rock when someone inside the home fired gunshots at the agents. The agents returned fire, striking the shooter, who was identified as Bryan Malinowski, 53, the executive director for the airport.

Malinowski was treated at the scene before being taken to an area hospital, Arkansas State Police said. His condition was not immediately available later Tuesday.

An ATF agent, whose identity was not released, was also shot in the exchange of gunfire but suffered a non-life-threatening wound, officials said. The agent, too, was taken to an area hospital for treatment.

Neither the ATF, state police nor federal prosecutors would provide details of what agents were looking for, citing an ongoing investigation.

Around 2:35 p.m., Little Rock firefighters carrying a power saw and a Halligan tool —a large pry bar— were seen walking toward the house. An ATF agent was overheard saying they were at the scene to help agents open a safe in Malinowski’s house,

It is interesting to read the assorted headlines of this incident so far. Half start with “Executive wounded/injured” and the other half with “ATF agent wounded/injured.” There was a time that the Media would immediately default towards the ATF agent without exception.

Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. sometimes it’s interesting how “authoritarian” people serve a warrant determined to destroy property…. the guy was there, not killed, they got a warrant, how about ASK for the combination of the safe…. Theres a rubber ducky in my safe.. along with a pair of Groucho Marks glasses…

    1. I think it’s the same anti-Constitutional mindset that makes government agencies “serve” warrants by SWAT teams invading the home at 0 dark hundred.

      1. Like the raids on the crypto folks around Keene, NH.

        Early morning, vehicles with battering rams, many heavily armed and armored cops, knocking out visible security cameras–for alleged money laundering.

    2. I had to think about this one for a while. My first thought was yeah You have a warrant I will just give you the combo to the safe. Then I remembered that if I give you the combo that can be construed as consent, and thus loosing my option of challenging your warrant. Go ahead bust the safe. I will get another.
