Two FBI agents fatally shot, three others injured while serving warrant at Florida home

Two FBI agents were killed and three others were injured in a shooting Tuesday morning as authorities were executing a search warrant at a home in Sunrise, Florida.

The gunman was also killed, the FBI’s Miami bureau said.

The incident began just after 6 a.m. at an address on Nob Hill Road, according to the Sunrise Police Department.

Authorities were at the home to serve a federal court-ordered search warrant in a violent crimes against children case, according to the FBI.

Special agents Daniel Alfin and Laura Schwartzenberger were killed in the shooting, FBI Director Christopher Wray said in a statement.

Two of the injured agents were taken to the hospital, where they were stable. The third did not require hospitalization.

“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,” Wray said. “The FBI will always honor their ultimate sacrifice and will be forever grateful for their bravery. We continue to stand by our FBI Family, and the families of these special agents, in the days to come, bringing every resource we can to get through this together.”

Police said earlier Tuesday that the suspect was barricaded inside a home and paramedics were on the scene. The shooter’s name has not been released.

In a tweet just after 9 a.m., police said the scene was safe but asked residents in the area to stay in their homes due to the ongoing investigation.
