David Lee Huber Wiki
55-year-old David Lee Huber has been identified as a suspect who shot two FBI agents in a raid on a child pornography case in Sunrise, Florida, early Tuesday.
Huber was married for 16 years and had two children before getting divorced in 2016.
Records show that Huber and his ex-wife created some sort of parenting plan at the time of their divorce for at least one of the children they shared.
Florida court records show that Huber did not list sex offenders and there was no prison record in Florida and only minor traffic violations.
He owned computer consulting companies from 2008 until last year.
He also received his commercial pilot certificate from the FAA in 1994.
43-year-old Special Agent Laura Schwartzenberger and 36-year-old Special Agent Daniel Alfin died trying to get a search warrant in Huber’s apartment.
Armed with an assault-style rifle, his agents lay in wait and, after watching through the doorbell camera, fired at them from his door.
Huber is believed to have committed suicide after setting up a barricade in his house.
The child pornography suspect, who shot two FBI agents before turning the gun on him during a dawn raid on his Florida apartment, is now pictured as it turns out he has two children. 55-year-old David Lee Huber shot and shot 36-year-old Special Agent Daniel Alfin and 43-year-old Special Agent Laura Schwartzenberger while attempting to issue a federal search warrant at his apartment in Sunrise, just outside Fort Lauderdale, early Tuesday. The FBI has confirmed that Huber, a lone informatics expert and divorced, was the target of a federal search warrant in a child pornography case that led the agents to the deadly raid.
Armed with an assault-style rifle, Huber was waiting for the FBI agents, and after watching through the doorbell camera, he opened fire at them through his unopened door.
Sources told CBS Miami that Schwartzenberger was killed instantly, but Alfin, who was shot multiple times, responded to the fire before he died. All three agents were injured in the clash.
Huber is believed to have committed suicide after barricading his apartment.
Florida court records show that Huber had only minor traffic violations. He was registered as a sex offender and had no Florida prison registration.
Broward County records show that he was married for 16 years and had two children before getting divorced in 2016.
Records show that Huber and his ex-wife created some sort of parenting plan at the time of their divorce for at least one of the children they shared. The ages of their children are not known.
Records show that he owned and operated computer consulting companies from 2008 until last year.
He also received his commercial pilot certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration in 1994.
Spearheading Tuesday’s events, he was working as a temporary tech contractor for Florida Blue, a member of Blue Cross and Blue Shield insurance companies, and the New York Times announced that he was working there in April 2020.
Prior to that, he also had a job at the employment agency Modis. Tuesday’s conflict was one of the bloodiest days in FBI history.
The FBI has published very little details about the deadly shooting so far, and a number of questions remain unanswered as to how an agent’s regular search warrant went so awry.
Former agents and law enforcement experts have since said that meticulous planning to prevent casualties had entered service orders, so the FBI had a lot to answer while the investigation was ongoing. Much of what is known thus far came from FBI sources. It is not yet clear whether the agency knew that the suspect was heavily armed, or whether it underestimated his reaction to the raid.
It is also unclear whether the agents announced themselves at the door or if they lost the element of surprise.
Retired FBI agent Richard Kolko told CBS Miami that something was clearly ‘very wrong’.
“With so many agents caught in the line of fire – something really went wrong and they’re going to spoil everything,” Kolko said.
He said the planning phase of the execution of the search warrant was meticulous.
