At least two FBI agents were shot and killed and three others were injured while serving a search warrant early Tuesday morning in a Sunrise neighborhood, setting off a massive police response and lockdown.
FBI officials said the agents were executing a federal court-ordered search warrant related to violent crimes against children case at an apartment complex when they were shot at.
Two of the wounded agents were taken to a local hospital in stable condition. The condition of the third wounded agent wasn’t released.
