The gunman, identified as Devid Lee Huber, 55, of Sunrise, reportedly used a high-powered automatic rifle, and other weapons were found inside.
A law enforcement source said that Hubers’s home was equipped with a Ring security camera in the doorbell which may he may have used to watch the agents approach his door before he opened fire
The shooting happened at the Water Terrace apartment complex on Reflections Boulevard. The agents were there to serve a warrant as part of a child porn investigation.
“It woke us up at 6 o’clock with the pop pop and then I came over here and I heard six more, the pop pop pop,” said Chris Deiner who lives nearby.
“Every day, FBI Special Agents 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,” said FBI Director Christopher Wray in a statement.
On Wednesday afternoon, CBS4 captured a sobering image. A procession of black police cars was seen leaving the crime scene. An hour later, two investigators were also seen leaving the complex carrying four bags of possible evidence.
