Earlier this week, two FBI agents were shot and killed in Florida by a suspect in Sunrise.
Acting Attorney General Monty Wilkinson issued the following statement: “We mourn the tragic loss of two of our FBI colleagues who were killed today in the line of duty … Our thoughts are with their families and loved ones and with their three colleagues who were shot in today’s devastating events. On this dark day, we pay tribute to the brave men and women of the FBI who put their lives on the line every day in support of our mission. We will never forget the ultimate sacrifice made by these special agents.”
The FBI later identified the suspect as David Lee Huber, 55, who was wanted on child pornography charges, reported Local10.
