Officials said two FBI agents were killed and three others were injured while serving a warrant in Florida early Tuesday.
The agents, not immediately identified, were shot at about 6 a.m. at a residential complex in Sunrise. FBI officials said in a statement while serving a court-ordered search warrant in a case involving sexual crimes against children.
At a hospital, the wounded agents were reported in stable condition. They, as well as the FBI agents who were killed during the shooting, were not immediately identified.
The suspect is dead as well, said FBI officials.
“The shooting incident is under investigation by the FBI’s Inspection Division in accordance with FBI policy,” the statement read. “Since this is an ongoing investigation, at this time no further information will be released.”
Sources earlier Tuesday told the South Florida Sun Sentinel that during the shooting at a residential complex named Reflections, a second FBI agent was killed.
The Miami Herald was told earlier Tuesday by a federal law enforcement source that at least five FBI agents were shot at a home in Sunrise, leaving two “gravely wounded.”
Police in Sunrise said that at his home on Reflections Boulevard, a man accused of having child pornography was barricaded, shutting down nearby traffic following the gunfire, according to the article.
At 9 a.m., the Sunrise police tweeted. That “the scene is secure,” but asked residents to stay at home. The department had previously asked drivers, noting the “heavy” police presence, to stay away from the city.
