PINELLAS PARK, Fla. – One man died and a second was hospitalized after separate shootouts with Tampa Bay, Florida-area authorities.
Sgt. Michael Lynch said in an email Sunday that two police officers dispatched Saturday night to a domestic dispute found a man suffering from a gunshot wound. The officers were confronted by another man who shot at them. Both officers returned fire, striking the man, who Lynch said died at a hospital.
The wounded man found earlier was pronounced dead at a hospital.
Separately, Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office spokesman Larry McKinnon said an email that a man "pulled out a semi-automatic handgun and fired multiple times" at two deputies responding to a domestic dispute early Sunday in Riverview.
McKinnon says the deputies returned fire, injuring the man.
None of the officers was injured.
