FBI Agents Are Killed, 3 Others Wounded In Raid In Sunrise, Fla”

Two FBI agents were fatally shot and three wounded Tuesday morning while serving a federal search warrant in a child exploitation case in South Florida, authorities said.

Davie police were at the scene along with the Federal Bureau of Investigation because it is routine while executing a search warrant to have a marked police auto parked outside the home of the target. After barricading himself in the home for several hours, the suspected gunman is believed to have shot and killed himself, one law-enforcement source said.

Two of the wounded agents were taken to hospitals to be treated and were in stable condition, Leverock said, adding that the names of the deceased agents will not be released immediately.

"Every day, FBI Special Agents put themselves in harm's way to keep the American people safe.Special Agent Alfin and Special Agent Schwartzenberger exemplified heroism today in defense of their country", he said in a statement.

Another large contingent of officers are gathered outside the Broward Health Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale where shooting victims were taken.

Law enforcement officers formed rows outside the entrance to the Broward Medical Examiner's office, saluting as a stretcher draped with the US flag was wheeled inside.

The FBI Agents Association (FBIAA) offered condolences to those injured and said the search warrant was in connection with suspected possession of child pornography. "The review process is thorough and objective and is conducted as expeditiously as possible under the circumstances".

McLymont said he couldn't see the apartment where the shooting happened from his location.

The suspect has also been killed.

More recently, two agents were killed and a third wounded in Washington DC in 1994, when a man entered the city's police headquarters and opened fire. Sunrise police told neighbors to stay inside their homes.
