According to the reports from the FBI headquarters, they have identified the two federal agents who were killed earlier this week.
The FBI was trying to crack down a case regarding child pornography, when, during the search operation, the shooting incident took place. Two people were killed.
The identities of these two federal agents were revealed by the FBI director himself in a press conference.
Special Agents, Daniel Alfin and Laura Schwartzenberger were conducting a federal court administered search when this incident happened. With the increasing cases of child pornography, the FBI has been investing in such cases.
It is not the first time that these agents were investigating a case regarding child pornography in America. But the reason that this case was becoming high profile was because of the involvement of the aide to the mayor of Miami.
Daniel was involved in investigating this case after the name of the aide to the mayor of Miami came up. According to the allegations, he had lured in a teenager and after sexually harassing him, shared his pictures with others.
Laura was also involved in investigating these cases for a very long time, and even taught the schoolchildren about sexual predators on the Internet. She was active in her community and wanted to spread awareness about the dangers in society.
It was around 6 am in the morning when this attack took place, claiming the lives of two special agents. Within the next few minutes, the entire area was sealed by the police officers.
The Director of the FBI, Christopher Asher Wray believes that both these agents are the true heroes of society. He also honored every special agent in the field who is serving to make America free of any crime.
He extended his condolences to the families of these two special agents and also to the three injured personnel. He stated that the people should feel safe knowing that the FBI is at work 24/7.
This is not the first time that Florida has been resounding with the sounds of bullets fired on the FBI agents. The most famous one was back in 1986 when two agents lost their lives in an attempt to arrest heavily-armed robbery suspects.
The three injured FBI agents’ medical expenses will be covered by the FBI.
