Nicholas Cunningham 42 and Jimmy Sanchez 38 are charged with aggravated kidnapping and aggravated robbery

"FBI was conducting an operation at a home in the 7300 block of Elbert Street in Northeast Houston. As with any Agent-Involved shooting, the Shooting Incident Review Team will investigate the matter".

Federal Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Christina Garza told KPRC that multiple people, including two children, were inside the home in northeast Houston at the time the shots were fired.

"The system failed", says Chief Dupuis. "We do this job to help people, and it doesn't always go our way".

Two men and one woman are charged with aggravated kidnapping, police said. "Even though it's good work on behalf of Conroe Police Department, it's still a tragedy". The men also are charged with aggravated robbery. All three were charged with aggravated kidnapping.

The agent who fired the fatal shot has been placed on administrative leave - standard protocol - pending the investigation, officials said. The agent's identity was not released. A 12-year-old boy and his father were in the home at the time.

Police said the men broke into a home in Conroe and abducted the man.

"This was not a random cartel thing", Smith said. The men took the father with them, and told the boy not to call police.

The attackers ordered the boy not to call police.

As authorities worked to unravel what happened, the brother got a call to his cellphone from a man who demanded a ransom and claimed to be with a cartel. "This is not something that happens every day".

Sources told the newspaper that the kidnapping victim was bound when he was shot. "At that time, we were able to determine where the victim was located".

"I believe there were other individuals inside", said Garza.

Despite this, Smith said there's no indication that the suspects have ties to any cartel, according to The Houston Chronicle. "It appears somebody connected to the family was involved". We do have suspects in custody.

"There's a possibility of filing a felony murder because the defendants put this into play", he said.

Sanchez has a long criminal history dating back to at least 1997, ranging from burglary to retaliation, including some charges in Harris County.

"They were demanding money they were owed that nobody knew anything about", Conroe Police Department Sergeant Jeff Smith said.

The outburst of violence shook neighbors along the quiet street of modest homes. "This is disgraceful", said another neighbor who didn't want to be identified.

"It sounded like an explosion and that was about 3 or 4 o'clock this morning", she said.

Another neighbor described hearing four shots in the dead of night. Now investigators questioning neighbors.

Neighbors were shocked to hear about the raid and shooting. One woman says they asked her about the young kids who lived in the home.
