FBI Agents Association (FBIAA) President Brian O’Hare issued the following statement on the death of two Special Agents and injuries to other Agents today in Miami, Florida.
“The FBI Agents Association mourns the loss of two FBI Special Agents killed in the line of duty today. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of these Agents and with the Agents wounded in today’s incident. At the time of the shooting, the Agents were carrying out a search warrant in the Miami, Florida area to seize evidence in connection with 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.
FBI Special Agents risk their lives to protect our country, and the loss of these Agents is devastating to the entire FBI community and to our country. FBIAA hopes that all Americans will join us in our efforts to support these FBI families in this time of tragedy.
