FBI confirms 2 agents killed, 3 wounded in suspected child porn raid in Florida

Two agents were killed, three wounded during a raid in Sunrise, Florida, the FBI said in a statement to media. They were attempting to serve a warrant on a suspect for child pornography possession when he opened fire on them.

Sunrise Police warned residents of Nob Hill Road to remain in their homes on Tuesday morning, after a raid on a suspect’s home went disastrously wrong. Law enforcement sources told the Miami Herald that at least five FBI agents were shot as they attempted to serve a warrant on a suspect for possession of child pornography.

Officers from multiple police departments descended on the scene of the deadly shooting, and the area remains locked down. The suspect reportedly barricaded himself inside his home for several hours before shooting himself dead, a source told the Herald.

The incident took place at 6 a.m. local time. By 9 a.m. police told residents that the area is safe, but asked locals to remain in their homes due to "ongoing investigation".
