Bakersfield police say a federal agent was involved Thursday in a shooting at the Lowe's Home Improvement parking lot at Highway 99 and Panama Lane.

The shooting took place during a Drug Enforcement Administration operation.

Police didn't give any indication the agent was hurt. The other party is stabilized in the hospital, police said.

Half of the store's parking lot is taped off, but the store is still open.
