I’ve directed the flags of the United States and the State of Florida to be flown at half-staff on Feb. 6 and Feb. 7 in honor of fallen FBI Special Agents Laura Schwartzenberger and Daniel Alfin, respectively. Their sacrifice and courage will never be forgotten. pic.twitter.com/yuki7ABzHD

A memorial service was held Saturday for Agent Laura Schwartzenberger at the Miami Dolphins’ football stadium. Schwartzenberger and fellow agent Daniel Alfin were gunned down Tuesday while serving a search warrant at the home of a child pornography suspect. The suspect killed himself before he could be arrested. FBI Director Christopher Wray said Schwartzenberger chose a high-stress job and worked hard to protect children from online predators. A separate service for Alfin will be held Sunday at the stadium.
Today, family and friends of fallen @FBIMiamiFL Special Agent Laura Schwartzenberger honored her memory during a service at Hard Rock Stadium. The FBI is fortunate that Laura chose to serve her county with us, and we will forever remember her as the shining light that she was. pic.twitter.com/pfy8wCuBSc
