A 9/11 hero has become the first member of the federal agency that regulates guns and alcohol to die from cancer related to the terrorist attack, authorities said Thursday. Special agent William Sheldon Jr. was 47.

The Milwaukee native was stationed in the Queens field office of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives when the Twin Towers fell on Sept. 11, 2001, according to an agency spokesman and the Orlando Sentinel. He and four other agents rushed to Ground Zero to search for survivors. More.
