BREAKING! TWO Murdered FBI agents identified – Killed during child porn raid in FL

The shooter who killed himself is not yet named.

UPDATE – FLORIDA SUN SENTINEL: Those killed were Special Agent Daniel Alfin and Special Agent Laura Schwartzenberger, according to a statement from FBI Director Christopher Wray, who said they were “executing a federal court-ordered search warrant in a crimes against children investigation in Sunrise, Florida.”

UPDATE – TAMPA BAY TIMES: 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.

Killed in that confrontation were special agents Ben Grogan and Jerry Dove. Grogan, 53, a two-decade veteran nicknamed The Doctor, was one year shy of retirement when he died. The “Miami Shootout” — which left five other agents wounded and the two suspects dead the morning of April 11,1986 — was a defining moment in the FBI’s history. It prompted the bureau to make sure all agents were better armed, replacing .38-caliber revolvers with 9mm semi-automatic handguns.
