SUNRISE, Fla. – The FBI announced on Wednesday that David Lee Huber was the child pornography suspect who killed FBI Special Agents Laura Schwartzenberger and Daniel Alfin before killing himself on Tuesday in Sunrise.

The FBI also suspected Huber, 55, a computer consultant, of violent crimes against children. He had surveillance cameras at his apartment when the agents arrived to execute a federal warrant at the Water Terrace Apartments, 10000 Reflections Blvd. W., Apt. 102.

Neighbors described Huber as “a loner.” Records show Huber got divorced in 2016 after 16 years of marriage and he was a father of three. He had traffic tickets, but he didn’t have a criminal record, records show. The Federal Aviation Administration reports Huber received his commercial pilot certificate on May 23, 1994.

The FBI’s inspection division is still investigating the fatal shooting. Three other agents were injured during the shooting. Both agents who were hospitalized were released from the hospital on Wednesday, according to James P. Marshall, a spokesman for the FBI Miami.
