Miami Herald
Police and first responders work a crime scene in Sunrise, Florida on Tuesday, February 2, 2021. One FBI agent, and possibly a second, was shot and killed and others injured while serving a warrant at a Sunrise home near Nob Hill Road and Northwest 44th Street.

Two agents were shot and killed and three wounded while serving a warrant at a Sunrise home Tuesday morning, the FBI confirmed Tuesday morning. After barricading himself in the home for several hours, the suspected gunman is believed to have shot and killed himself, one law-enforcement source said.

Sunrise police said the suspect, a man suspected of child pornography possession, had holed up in his home at an apartment complex at 10100 Reflections Blvd. West. Nob Hill Road is closed in both directions from Northwest 44th Street to Oakland Park Boulevard.

“Two wounded agents were transported to hospital and are in stable condition,” the FBI said in a statement. The statement did not address the condition of the third agent. The victims appeared to have been taken to the trauma unit at Broward Health Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale. Dozen of police officers from area agencies were already gathered outside by 11 a.m.
