CENTRAL TEXAS, TX (KXXV) -

Two suspects in the shooting of a DEA agent in the Little Rock, AR area were stopped in Bell County Thursday morning, after initially being spotted in McLennan County.

Adrian Urquidez-Cecena and David Eduardo Verduzco-Bojorquez were arrested. A local DEA agent says both are Mexican nationals who are here legally.

DPS Trooper D.L. Wilson says this started about midnight in Little Rock, when two men described as Hispanic men in their mid-20s, fired shots at a DEA agent in a vehicle.

The agent was wounded and taken to a hospital. Authorities say he had non-life threatening injuries and is expected to be okay. Descriptions of the men and their vehicle were sent out to other agencies. The vehicle was also being tracked by authorities in some way, but that information was not disclosed.

About 6:20 a.m. Thursday morning, a DPS trooper spotted the vehicle in McLennan County at the 322 mile marker on I-35, and began a "slow roll" surveillance of the vehicle, a Silver 2005 Kia SUV, while contacting backup units.

Members of the McLennan County and Bell County Sheriff's Office were notified. As the vehicle entered Bell County, Temple PD also joined.

Authorities stopped the vehicle at the 299 mile marker on I-35 in Temple.

Trooper Wilson reports the driver stopped without incident. Both men were taken into custody and are being booked into the Bell County Jail.
