FORT WAYNE, Ind. — Federal agents knew Marcus Hayden was in an apartment in the 1300 block of Greene Street late Monday, and they moved in to arrest him.

After announcing their presence and demanding he come out, police broke down the door about 11:30 p.m. and gunfire erupted. Hayden shot a U.S. marshal trying to arrest him before a city officer shot Hayden. He later died at a hospital, officials said.

U.S. marshals and agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were serving a warrant accusing Hayden of failure to appear in federal court. Fort Wayne police officers acted as backup.
