Two FBI agents were killed, three wounded during a raid in Sunrise, Florida, the agency 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 Miami 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”.

In the bloodiest day for the FBI in decades, two veteran agents were shot to death and three others wounded Tuesday morning when a gunman opened fire from inside his home.

The murders of agents Daniel Alfin and Laura Schwartzenberger left the FBI reeling, as investigators began piecing together what went wrong in the type of raid that usually unfolds with little attention but is also fraught with danger for law enforcement.

The FBI had not provided details of the case against the gunman, other than to say he was suspected of possessing illegal graphic images of children.

Major mistake in approach, very strange for the paranoid Americans to raid criminal suspects without members of the swat teams?
