Police say a gunman suspected of killing two Florida police officers and wounding a U.S. marshal during a shootout has been found dead.
The man accused of carrying out a mass shooting in Tucson pleaded not guilty Monday to charges he tried to kill Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and two of her aides.
Law enforcement officers had been at the home to arrest Hydra Lacy Jr., 39, around 7 a.m. on an aggravated battery charge, and investigators think he is the one who opened fire on the officers, Mr. Puetz said.
St. Petersburg police spokesman Michael Puetz said the gunman's body was found when officers went into the home Monday afternoon, about six hours after the shootout, the latest in a recent rash of shootings across the nation that have killed or wounded law enforcement officers.
