Thirty years ago, FBI agents Ben Grogan and Jerry Dove died in a vicious gun battle with two heavily armed suspected bank robbers in Miami-Dade’s Suniland area, which is now part of Pinecrest. It’s described as the bloodiest shootout in FBI history.
On a street corner in Pinecrest Monday , a wreath was laid to remember the heroes of the FBI who died in the Miami Shootout on April 11, 1986.
Five agents were also wounded during the gun battle.
"Ben Grogan and Jerry Dove sacrificed their lives to save mine," retired agent Edmundo Mireles told CBS Miami. "It’s a wonderful gift getting an entire 30 years of life."
