NATIONAL (KRQE) – A shootout in south Florida Tuesday morning ended with two FBI agents dead. The agents went to a Fort Lauderdale apartment to serve a search warrant in a child exploitation case when the suspect opened fire killing two agents and wounding three others.

The FBI identified those killed as Special Agent Daniel Alfin and Special Agent Laura Schwartzenberger who started her career as an FBI agent in Albuquerque in 2005 before being transferred to Miami in 2010. She worked in crimes against children and often did lectures and interviews.

“We work very hard on investigating these crimes, trying to solve them as quickly as possible. These are violent criminals,” said Schwartzenberger. Authorities say after shooting the agents, the gunman turned the gun on himself.
