Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - WASHINGTON — Two FBI agents were fatally shot and three agents were wounded in a shootout as they executed a search warrant in Sunrise, Florida, on Tuesday morning, the FBI said.

The subject of the warrant is dead, the FBI said in a statement.

The shooting occurred at about 6 a.m. as a team of law enforcement officers executed a federal court-ordered search warrant as part of violent crimes against children case, according to a statement from FBI Miami Special Agent Michael D. Leverock and spokesman Jim Marshall.

Two of the injured FBI agents were taken to the hospital and are in stable condition, while the third injured agent was not hospitalized, officials said.

FBI Director Christopher Wray identified the deceased agents as Special Agent Daniel Alfin and Special Agent Laura Schwartzenberger.

"Special Agent Alfin and Special Agent Schwartzenberger exemplified heroism today in defense of their country," he said in a statement. "The FBI will always honor their ultimate sacrifice and will be forever grateful for their bravery."

A body draped in an American flag is transported from an ambulance following the fatal shooting of two FBI agents in Sunrise, Florida, on Tuesday.

The shooting took place at the Water Terrace apartment complex, an upscale gated community outside Fort Lauderdale, at 6:04 a.m., according to Sunrise Police spokeswoman Otishia Browning-Smith. The person who officers were looking for had barricaded himself, she said.

Sunrise Police said the scene was safe as of 9:04 a.m. yet still asked people to remain in their homes due to the ongoing investigation.
