    Federal agent fatally shot outside South Florida post office

    PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. (WSVN) -- According to police, a federal agent has died after a man shot him in the parking lot of a South Florida post office.

    Authorities are investigating the scene of the shooting that occurred in the area of Dykes and Pines Boulevard Tuesday morning. Officials said a middle-aged man shot the special agent with the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Task Force in the head. "We do know that this just appears to be some type of altercation in the parking lot. It does not involve any postal employees or any employees here at the center," said St. Bryan Davis of the Pembroke Pines Police Department.

    Witnesses said the agent was at the post office with his daughter when the suspect approached him. "I saw the daughter frantic, hysterical, and then, I saw the victim laying on the ground," said Janice Chin.

    About 200 agents are searching for the gunman. "The suspect information that we did get was a middle-aged man, possibly 45 to 55 years of age, driving a dark green or gray Chrysler 300," said Davis.

    Authorities pulled over several vehicles in an effort to find the suspect.

    Paramedics transported the agent to Memorial Regional Hospital where he later died.

    Police describe the suspect as a white male with a full head of hair, wearing a green-colored plaid shirt.

    If you have any information on this shooting, call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward.
    “The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed."

    "You go for a man hard enough and fast enough, he don't have time to think about how many's with him; he thinks about himself, and how he might get clear of that wrath that's about to set down on him."

            BOLO:

            "The suspect information that we did get was a middle-aged man, possibly 45 to 55 years of age, driving a dark green or gray Chrysler 300,"-

            Police described the suspect as a white male with a tan complexion and a full head of gray hair, wearing a green-colored plaid shirt.

                      The subject gets charged with regular murder 1st or 2nd. Not murdered on law enforcement officer. The law enforcement needs to be in uniform, when murdered. Might be wrong, but I guess I am right duh.

                              From what my "sources" tell me, it was a road rage incident.

                              The SA was in plain clothes.

                              I hope none of you have a grey/green 300....
