An off-duty FBI agent fired at three men that attempted to break into his car this morning in South Ozone Park.

The agent found the suspects outside his home on Sutter Avenue at about 5:15 a.m., police said.

After calling 9-1-1, the man confronted the suspects and opened fire as the trio fled the scene in a dark-colored car, striking one suspect, cops said.

Police canvassed area hospitals and discovered a man with a gunshot wound to the lower back at Brookdale Hospital, about six miles from the shooting.

The suspect is in police custody in stable condition.

The FBI confirmed an off-duty agent was involved in a shooting, but had no further details.

The investigation is ongoing.
