Special Agent Paul Broxterman was one of eight federal agents killed in a terrorist attack carried out against the United States government in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Eight federal law enforcement agents were killed in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, when domestic terrorists detonated a truck bomb outside of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. A total of 168 civilians and government workers, including numerous children in an on-site day care facility, were killed in the terrorist attack.

The terrorists bombed the building in retaliation for the government's raid on the Branch Davidian Compound in Waco, Texas, exactly two years earlier. The raid initiated a mass murder-suicide in which over 80 members of the Branch Davidians were killed. The members had been holed up in the compound after murdering four agents of the United States Alcohol, Tobacco, & Firearms on February 28, 1993.

Two suspects were apprehended in connection with the bombing. One of the suspects was sentenced to life and the other was executed on June 11, 2001.
