The article was published that same day on the USA Today website at 9:30 a.m.

The newspaper's publisher has refused to hand over the information, citing a violation of the First Amendment.

On Feb. 2, agents Daniel Alfin and Laura Schwartzenberger were gunned down and three others were wounded while serving a warrant on 55-year-old David Huber.

The suspect started shooting as the agents approached his apartment in Fort Lauderdale shortly after 6 a,m.

Huber took his own life after opening fire on the agents.

USA Today, owned by Gannett corporation, was among the many newspapers covering the story that morning. It isn't clear if the FBI is demanding the IP addresses and phone numbers from other media outlets that covered the story.

According to DailyMail.com, the subpoena doesn't specify why the FBI wants the information.
