Two FBI agents have been shot dead in Florida and three others injured while serving a federal search warrant in a case involving 'violent crimes against children'.

The shooting unfolded at an apartment complex in Sunrise, just outside Fort Lauderdale, at about 6am this morning as agents investigated a man suspected of possessing child pornography.     

Two agents were killed and three others were injured in the standoff with the suspect. Two of the injured agents are currently in stable conditions in hospital. The condition of the third agent wasn't immediately known. 

The gunman, who was suspected of possessing child porn, is also dead after barricading himself inside the home during the shootout. 

In the hours after the shooting, two stretchers covered with American flags were escorted by FBI agents into the Broward Medical Examiner's office. 

Footage from WSVN showed officers forming an honor guard as the stretches were taken inside. 

The FBI said they would not be immediately releasing the names of the slain agents.

The FBI said agents had been serving a federal court-ordered search warrant at the time for what they described as a 'violent crimes against children case'. 

The FBI did not give any other details about the suspect, or release his name. 

A law enforcement source told the Miami Herald that the FBI had been investigating the suspect alongside Fort Lauderdale federal prosecutors.

Agents were planning to carry out a routine search warrant to seize the suspect's computer as part of a child porn investigation.

Authorities say the FBI had found an IP address for the suspect's computer on an internet service provider.

When agents arrived at his home, the suspect barricaded himself inside before opening fire. 

If the agents were to have uncovered anything during the search, the suspect likely would have faced some type of child porn charge, sources said. 

The FBI said the investigation into the shooting is still ongoing.  

'In accordance with FBI policy, the shooting incident is under investigation by the FBI's Inspection Division,' the FBI said in a statement.

'The review process is thorough and objective and is conducted as expeditiously as possible under the circumstances.

'No further information will be released at this time.'  

Multiple law enforcement agencies, including the SWAT team, are still gathered at the scene of the shooting. 

Another large contingent of officers are gathered outside the Broward Health Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale where shooting victims were taken. 

The Sunrise Police Department had earlier tweeted about the heavy police presence, noting that several roads were closed in the area.

They declared the scene safe just after 9am but told nearby residents that they were required to remain in their homes.  

Sunrise is a middle-class neighborhood of single family homes, duplexes and apartment buildings.
