PINELLAS PARK, Fla. (AP) - One man died and a second was hospitalized after separate shootouts with Tampa Bay-area authorities.

In Pinellas Park, Sgt. Michael Lynch said in an email early Sunday that two police officers dispatched Saturday night to a domestic dispute found a man suffering from a gunshot wound.

Lynch says the officers then were confronted by another man who shot at them. Both officers returned fire, striking the man, who Lynch says died at a hospital.

Lynch says the wounded man found earlier was pronounced dead at a hospital.

In Riverview, 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.

McKinnon says the deputies returned fire, injuring the man.

None of the officers were injured.
