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 a 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.”
The shootout, one of the deadliest in FBI history, brought a major law enforcement response to the area.
The FBI said its Inspection Division is investigating the shooting.
“The review process is thorough and objective and is conducted as expeditiously as possible under the circumstances,” the FBI statement said.
Deadliest FBI shooting in years
The FBI Agents Association offered condolences to those injured and said the search warrant was in connection to suspected possession of child pornography.
“These Agents were working to protect the most vulnerable in our society. FBIAA stands with the Agents’ families and pledges our support to them during this difficult time,” FBIAA President Brian O’Hare said in a statement.
