Kodak Black — a popular Pompano Beach rapper who former President Donald Trump recently pardoned — has reportedly offered to pay college tuitions for the children of two FBI agents shot and killed while serving a warrant in Sunrise last week, including those of FBI Special Agent Laura Schwartzenberger of Coral Springs.
In a video posted to Twitter, the rapper’s lawyer, Bradford Cohen, told a crowd that a letter had recently been sent to the FBI offering to pay for college tuition for all three children.
Schwartzenberger had two children, aged 10 and 12, while Alfin left behind a 4-year-old child. As of this moment, TMZ reports the rapper and his lawyer have not received a response.
“We sent a letter over to the FBI director in Miami [saying] that Kodak is offering to pay for all three kids’ tuitions going forward,” Cohen can be heard telling the crowd while standing next to Kodak.
“He’s always [risen] to the top in terms of any kind of charities, any kind of giving,” the lawyer said to applause from the crowd.
According to Cohen, the Pompano Beach-born star — whose real name is Bill Kahan Kapri — first heard of the tragedy from a friend he has inside the FBI’s Miami field office.
TMZ reports in the letter Kodak writes that he’s himself had experiences with losing loved ones and grew up in a single-parent home, so he wants to make sure the mourning families don’t ever have to worry about sending their kids to college.

According to the FBI, Schwartzenberger was part of a team of law enforcement officers executing a federal court-ordered search warrant regarding a child-pornography probe when the suspect, David Lee Huber, 55, of Sunrise, opened fire. In addition to the two deaths, three other agents were wounded in the gunfight.
