Miami, Fl. – South Florida U.S. Attorney Ariana Fajardo Orshan today issued the following statement on the tragic agent-involved shooting in Sunrise, Florida: 

“It is with heavy hearts that we mourn the deaths of FBI Special Agent Daniel Alfin and Special Agent Laura Schwartzenberger, who were shot and killed today in the line of duty while executing a federal court-ordered warrant in Sunrise, Florida.  We pray for the loved ones of these Special Agents and for their three colleagues who were injured during the shooting.  Today’s tragic events remind us of the bravery of federal agents, who risk their lives to protect our communities and our country. We must never forget that, just as we will never forget the ultimate sacrifice made by Special Agents Alfin and Schwartzenberger.”
