LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock FBI agent Mike Orndorff remains in critical condition after being shot while working on an investigation in Crosbyton.

The shooting happened at Highway 651 and County Road 190, about five miles south of Crosbyton around 9:30 p.m. on Thursday.

DPS has confirmed that Orndorff was a victim of friendly fire.

DPS Sgt. Bryan Witt says Texas Rangers, FBI and DPS were conducting a joint investigation and were in the process of arresting a suspect when the shooting happened.

That suspect is in custody, but is not the shooter.

The officer that reportedly shot Orndorff is a member of the DPS Criminal investigations Division.

Mike was a LPD officer for several years before joining the FBI in the 1990s. Agent Orndorff is known for his involvement in two high profile investigations in Lubbock - the Khalid Aldawsari and Hailey Dunn investigations.

DPS tells us they are assisting the FBI in the investigation.

Orndorff was brought to UMC here in Lubbock, where he remains as of Saturday morning.
