ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Three armed suspects were wounded when the drug dealers they intended to rob Thursday turned out to be federal agents, the Orange County Sheriff's Office said.

An elite squad of ATF agents from Texas opened fire when one of the men raised an AK-47 assault rifle rather than surrender, deputies and agents said.
