Branch Davidian standoff in Waco begins
When agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives serve warrants at the Branch Davidian compound outside of Waco, Texas, a gunfight erupts, killing four agents and six members of the fringe Christian group. The resulting siege will last 51 days.

The Waco siege was a siege of a compound belonging to the group Branch Davidians by American federal and Texas state law enforcement and US military between February 28 and April 19, 1993. The Branch Davidians, a sect that separated in 1955 from the Seventh-day Adventist Church, was led by David Koresh and lived at Mount Carmel Center ranch in the community of Elk, Texas, nine miles east-northeast of Waco. The group was suspected of weapons violations, causing a search and arrest warrant to be obtained by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and action taken upon support by President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Janet Reno.
