Two FBI agents were killed and three others were wounded while serving a warrant on a federal child pornography suspect early Tuesday in Florida, officials said.
The agents, who were not immediately identified, were shot at a residential complex in Sunrise at about 6 a.m. while executing a court-ordered search warrant in a case involving violent crimes against children, FBI officials said in a statement.
The wounded agents were listed in stable condition at a hospital. They were not immediately identified, nor were the FBI agents who were killed during the gunfire.
The suspect is also dead, FBI officials said.
A federal law enforcement source told the Miami Herald that the suspect is believed to have shot and killed himself during the standoff.
“In accordance with FBI policy, the shooting incident is under investigation by the FBI’s Inspection Division,” the statement read. “Because this is an ongoing investigation, no further information will be released at this time.”
Sources earlier Tuesday told the South Florida Sun Sentinel that a second FBI agent had been killed during the shooting at a residential complex called Reflections.
A federal law enforcement source told the Miami Herald earlier Tuesday that at least five FBI agents were shot at a home in Sunrise, leaving two “gravely wounded.”
Police in Sunrise said a man suspected of possessing child pornography was barricaded in his home on Reflections Boulevard, shutting down nearby traffic following the gunfire, according to the report.
Sunrise police tweeted at 9 a.m. that the “scene is safe,” but asked residents to stay in their homes. The department had earlier asked drivers to stay away from the area, noting the “heavy” police presence.
The child pornography investigation was being conducted by the FBI and federal prosecutors in Fort Lauderdale, the Herald reported.
