TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Authorities say they found a body in a Kansas hotel room that erupted in flames during a shootout in which three federal agents were injured while trying to arrest a robbery suspect.

The FBI said in a release Sunday that two deputy U.S. marshals and an FBI agent suffered non-life-threatening injuries Saturday night when they came under fire while trying to arrest 28-year-old Orlando J. Collins at the Topeka hotel.

The FBI says during the gunfire, a fire broke out in the room where authorities later found an unidentified body. It didn’t identify the body or say if Collins was arrested.

Authorities said earlier four agents were injured. The FBI didn’t specify the nature of the injuries and didn’t immediately return calls seeking clarification about the change.
