The ATF National Headquarters in Washington D.C. will be renamed on Friday to honor Special Agent Aerial Rios, who was killed during an undercover operation in Miami in 1982, Guns.com reports. 

Rios, who was a special agent for five years before his death, met with two suspects at a Miami hotel to buy large quantity of cocaine and machine guns on Dec. 2, 1982.

When one of the suspects became suspicious, a struggle ensued and Rio was shot. Fellow agent Alex D’Atri also was shot but he survived after numerous surgeries.

The former ATF headquarters was named after Rios in 1985, but when the agency left, the EPA took over the building and renamed it the William Jefferson Clinton Federal Building.
