A gun that failed to fire may have saved the lives of two federal drug agents during a recent incident in a Buffalo hotel, a federal prosecutor said Saturday.

U.S. Attorney Terrance P. Flynn said a gunman pointed his weapon at two agents and tried to fire at them from point-blank range. "If it had fired, we could have had two agents dead or seriously injured in the line of duty," Flynn said.
