Two FBI agents were shot and killed and three others wounded in Sunrise, Florida, on Tuesday as they attempted to serve a warrant on a man suspected of possessing child pornography.

Law enforcement believe the man is the one who shot the officers and that he also shot and killed himself after barricading himself inside for several hours. Local police accompanied the FBI to the apartment complex and parked an official vehicle outside. After the shooting, local law enforcement agencies converged on the area.

An FBI statement on the shooting said two of the injured officers were taken to a hospital and were in stable condition. The statement did not reveal the condition of the third agent.
