Special Agent Benjamin Grogan and Special Agent Jerry Dove were shot and killed while attempting to apprehend two bank robbers in Miami, Florida.

The two suspects had been on a spree of bank robberies which left several people dead and wounded. After setting up a surveillance several agents began to follow the suspects and attempted to stop them in front of 12201 SW 82nd Avenue. During the take down a furious gunfight ensued, leaving Agents Grogan and Dove dead and seven other agents wounded. The two suspects were also shot and killed.

Special Agent Grogan had been with the agency for 19 years and was survived by his wife. He is buried in Palmetto Cemetery, Brunswick, Glynn County, Georgia.

I was a cop with Pinecrest for 10 years. Every time I drove by 122 and 82, I remembered that horrific day where two angels were taken from us. RIP Agents Grogan and Dove.
