FBI agent killed in NJ bank robbery probe laid to rest
The FBI agent who was killed during a New Jersey bank robbery investigation was laid to rest Thursday in his hometown of Pottstown, Pennsylvania.
Hundreds gathered to pay their respects to 52-year-old Barry Lee Bush. The fallen agent was eulogized as a dogged investigator and role model to legions of colleagues in law enforcement. His career spanned more than 20 years.
?If you were an FBI agent and you worked with Barry Bush, you became a better agent,? said FBI Special Agent David Jon Harvey, who was a member of the team that responded to the suspected bank robbery last week.
Bush was fatally shot as he and other agents attempted to arrest bank robbery suspects outside a PNC Bank in Readington. Investigators say Bush may have been accidentally shot by another agent during the confrontation. He was the 51st FBI agent killed in the line of duty.
Meanwhile, the suspects in the attempted robbery are being held in jail without bail.
