BREAKING: One FBI Agent Killed, Multiple More Wounded Serving Warrant

Sunrise, FL – At least one Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agent was killed on Tuesday morning and several more agents were seriously wounded while trying to serve a warrant in a child pornography case.

The incident occurred at about 6 a.m. on Feb. 2 when FBI agents and Davie police officers attempted to serve a warrant at the home of a child pornography suspect in a residence at 10100 Reflections Boulevard in Sunrise, FOX News reported.

A federal law enforcement source told the Miami Herald that at least five federal agents were shot during the raid.

Sources also said that the warrant was for the suspect’s computer and other evidence.

The Miami Herald reported that the FBI tracked down the suspect’s address working with the Internet service provider and then matched up the physical address.

Sources said the FBI and federal prosecutors would have likely filed some type of pornography charges against the suspect based on what was found during the search.

Another source told FOX News that the suspect barricaded himself in the home after he opened fire on law enforcement and it is believed that he may have shot himself after he shot the agents.

However, authorities have not confirmed that information and the incident is ongoing.

Law enforcement officers from multiple other agencies have descended on the scene to assist.

Police have shut down nearby roads in both directions while they investigate.
