Special Agent Daniel Alfin and Special Agent Laura Schwartzenberger were working a normal day when the tragedy occurred.
Alfin and Schwartzenberger were assigned to investigate criminals who prey on children online.
Last Tuesday morning, they and a group of other officers arrived at a house in Sunrise, west of Fort Lauderdale with a search warrant, a routine part of their jobs.
But this did not play out like usual...
As a gun battle broke out, 3 officers were injured.
2 of whom needed hospital care.
And Alfin and Schwartzenberger died.
Reportedly, it was one of the deadliest shootings in the bureau's history.
And a complete tragedy.
Schwartzenberger had reportedly been part of the FBI since 2005.
She was a mother of 2.
Alfin had been a special agent since 2009.
He was a father of 1.
Their families now face a lifetime of loss and heartbreak.
And their young children, will grow up without a parent.
Something that one famous rapper knows too well.
Which is why he has reached out to help the families of Alfin and Schwartzenberger.
Kodak Black has reached out to the families of the slain FBI agents offering to pay their children's colleges tuition.
TMZ reports that Black had his attorney, Bradford Cohen, send a letter with the kind offer.
The letter was sent to the FBI Miami Division offering to pay college tuition for the children of the 2 agents.
A move that has been praised online...
In the letter, obtained by TMZ, Cohen says Kodak knows what it's like to lose loved ones and grow up in a single-parent home.
Adding that, he wants to make sure the mourning families don't ever have to worry about sending their kids to college.
They also report that Kodak's attorney said he has a friend in the FBI's Miami office who told him about Alfin and Schwartzenberger.
