Two FBI Agents were shot dead and 3 others were wounded in a fatal shootout in Sunrise, Florida, following an armed confrontation.

George Piro, the leader of the FBI’s Miami field office said at a news conference that the suspect fired the agents as they arrived to execute the Federal Search warrant. 

“Today this grim reality has taken two of our best from our family. They were valuable members of the FBI and will forever be heroes.  We will always honor their ultimate sacrifice,” said Piro.

FBI Director Christopher A Wray has identified two agents who were shot to death as Daniel Alfin and Laura Schwartzenberger.

The event has come out to be one of the darkest days in the history of the FBI.

Another resident in the neighborhood talked about hearing the gun firings. He stepped out of his place to look over from the fence and witnessed the police cars and ambulances making a rushed entrance in the premises. Reportedly, the police urged the residents to stay inside their homes. Also, the entrance to their community was blocked. 

The video footage from the local police station shows a frightful scene where the SWAT team thrust into the complex. Bloodstains were found outside the apartments.

As per the court records, Ms. Schwartzenberger was aged 43 and had been a part of the squad on the bureau’s Miami field office that investigates violent crimes against children. 

A mother of two, the lady had been working with the FBI since 2005. Mr. Alfrin was a 36 years old father to a child. A special agent since 2009, he was assigned to investigate with the Miami Child Exploitation task force. 

Expressing his grief President Joe Biden said: “They put their lives on the line and that’s hell of a price to pay.” ”My heart aches for their families,” he added.

In the past, a similar gun battle had taken place in Miami, 35 years ago, taking a toll on the life of 2 FBI agents, and injured 5 others.
