The 1986 FBI Miami Shootout!!

This clip is from the 'made for TV' movie entitled "In The Line Of Duty"
staring David Soul. On April 11, 1986 a firefight ensued between 8 FBI
agents and 2 known murderers/bank robbers Michael Platt and William
Matix. This is arguably the most documented and analyzed firearms
shootout in modern history. Before the fight was over, FBI Special
Agents Jerry Dove and Ben Grogan were killed by .223 gunshots from a
Ruger mini-14 at the hands of Michael Platt. Platt himself had sustained
12 gun shot wounds (9mm, .38 and 00 shot) but continued to fight
killing both Grogan and Dove. Toxicology reports on Platt and Matix
found no evidence of drugs or alcohol in either man. This fire fight and
the resulting aftermath were the genesis of the 10mm and .40 S&W
rounds.
