    The incident is said to have taken place at around 6 am on Tuesday morning in the city of Sunrise, Broward County – one of the three countries making up the Miami metropolitan area.

    Two FBI agents have been killed and three others injured in a "shooting incident" in southern Florida, the agency said in a statement.

    The sole suspect is also said to have been killed.

    The agents were reportedly gunned down while serving a search warrant. Sources told Fox News and the Miami Herald that the warrant was being served in connection to a child pornography case.

    Footage from the area near where the shooting took place shows police, SWAT, and ambulances driving through, with police asking residents in the neighbourhood to remain at home. 

    The FBI says its two wounded agents have been taken to hospital and that they are in stable condition. The names of the deceased agents, as well as the suspect, have not yet been released.
