Audio: Clinton Airport Executive Dies After ATF Raid and Shooting at His Home—Brother Raises Suspicion with New Statement

53-year-old Bryan Malinowski, the executive director of Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport, has died from injuries sustained in a shootout with ATF federal agents during a raid to execute a search warrant at his residence in West Little Rock, Arkansas.

His brother recounted the events, alleging that agents forcibly entered the home and fatally shot Bryan with a high-caliber rifle, leaving the family confused.

‘The ATF burst into his house in the most dangerous manner possible,’ said the brother. ‘The easiest and most common way to handle this situation would have been to wait until he got in his car, pull him over, and arrest him.

Matthew Malinowski, Bryan’s brother, also told Fox News struggled to find a reason why the ATF targeted his brother. He speculated that his brother may have “brought something he shouldn’t have.”

The brother then told NBC his brother “had no choice but to defend himself” and the official story “stinks to high hell.”

“There’s something fishy here,” Matthew Malinowski said. “The ATF went after him in the worst possible way.”

“There’s no reason why they couldn’t have arrested him at work at the airport, he continued. “Something stinks to high hell.”

The brother further noted his brother was well-connected with senators, earned $253,000 a year, lived in an upper-middle class suburb, and had collections of guns and coins. Why would he risk this all in a suicidal fight with federal agents?

“He has so much to lose,” Matthew Malinowski said.

The heavily redacted affidavit raised even more suspicion!

While being heavily redacted, the affidavit detailing why the ATF were at his home was unsealed Thursday afternoon.

The search warrant was approved for Bryan Malinowski’s property and vehicle to look for evidence of him breaking federal firearm laws by selling firearms while unlicensed to do so.

The affidavit describes Malinowski purchasing over 150 guns between May 2021 and Feb. 2024, many of them online.

6 of those firearms were found to be involved in crimes, and 3 were bought by undercover ATF agents.

Undercover agents bought firearms from Malinowski who was acting as an unlicensed vendor at a gun show. He did not ask the agents for ID or paperwork, and told them he sells at gun shows in Benton, Conway, and a music hall in Memphis.
