Miami, United States:

Two FBI agents were shot dead and three injured Tuesday while serving a search warrant against a suspect in a child pornography case in southern Florida, the FBI said.

The suspect was also dead, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a statement.

The FBI and media reports said the shooting occurred around 6:00 a.m. in Sunrise, Florida, when agents arrived to execute a search warrant on the suspect’s home.

“Two FBI agents died and three were wounded,” the FBI said.

Two of the wounded agents have been rushed to the hospital and are in stable condition.


A law enforcement source told the Miami Herald that the suspect shot himself after barricading himself in his home for several hours.

The newspaper said the FBI agents tried to seize the suspect’s computer and other evidence in a child pornography case.
