David Lee Huber Bio, WIki
David Lee Huber has been identified as a 55-year-old computer consultant by the FBI who shot and killed two veteran FBI agents who were executing a warrant in a child exploitation case. He was described by neighbors as a loner who was a bit off, sending off red flags to some. There were some pockmarks in an otherwise seemingly typical life – a divorce, a bankruptcy, and an eviction. But he had no criminal history.
When Huber saw the agents coming through a doorbell camera and opened fire through a door. It’s believed there shot and killed himself.
According to the Herald, he ran a series of short-lived businesses; a company called World Tech Supplies in Kendall in 1988 and computer consulting businesses named Huber Computer Consulting and COMPUTER TROUBLESHOOTERS 0512 INC.

In addition to the slain agents, the suspect also shot three other agents. Wray added that five agents were shot in all; two are in stable condition at the hospital and one did not suffer wounds requiring hospitalization.
The Sun-Sentinel quoted a neighbor who went a step farther, calling Huber a “coo-coo bird” he’d complained about to the homeowners’ association. Another neighbor told the Miami Herald that Huber, who was married for 16 years before divorcing, seemed anti-social. He was once evicted in Colorado, the newspaper reported.
April Evans told the Herald he seemed to have little furniture and lived alone. “He is very weird and very grumbling. If you would speak to him, he would usually not speak back,” said Evans to the newspaper. “If he did, it was just a grunt under his breath.” She described to the newspaper how an exterminator who visited his apartment once said, “Oh my God, the guy that lived downstairs just had a gun in my face.”
Alfin and Schwartzenberger had worked for years to protect children from Internet predators. They were “veteran agents of the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force program,” according to the Miami Herald.
FBI Director Wray said in his statement that the FBI “lost two of our own today” and that Schwartzenberger and Alfin “put themselves in harm’s way to keep the American people safe.”
“Special Agent Alfin and Special Agent Schwartzenberger exemplified heroism today in defense of their country,” continued Wray. “The FBI will always honor their ultimate sacrifice and will be forever grateful for their bravery.”
He added, “We continue to stand by our FBI Family, and the families of these Special Agents, in the days to come, bringing every resource we can to get through this together.”
Videos showed the bodies of the agents accompanied by law enforcement escort as they were transported to the medical examiner’s office. One body was draped with an American flag. You can watch that video here.
The Sunrise, Florida, Police Department tweeted that the shooting occurred “in the area of 4200 Nob Hill Rd.”
