"Much has been written about the April 11, 1986 “FBI Miami Shootout.” Two murderous ex-military bank robbers. Eight FBI agents. One hundred and fifty shots fired.
In five minutes two bank robbers and two FBI agents were dead. Five other FBI agents were wounded, three critically. This incident would change FBI and law enforcement training, tactics and weaponry forever.
My name is Ed Mireles and this is my story of survival and the fight to save the lives of my brother agents on that fateful day."
During this five hour lecture, retired Special Agent Ed Mireles of the FBI will provide a detailed account of the shootout that changed law enforcement weapons and tactics for a generation. The presentation will take place at the Holiday Inn Chantilly-Dulles, 4335 Chantilly Shopping Center, from 1230-1730 on 25 August.
Drinks and a book signing afterward, location TBD.
