HOLIDAY, Fla. (AP) - Sheriff’s deputies shot a man while they investigated a domestic battery report at a home in Holiday.

The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office says deputies shot the man after he threatened them early Friday. They had received information that the man’s girlfriend had been battered and would not answer the door or allow anyone in the house, north of Tampa.

When deputies went to check on her, the man threatened them.

Officials say the initial call came in at 10:30 p.m. Thursday and deputies got into the home around 12:30 a.m. Friday.

The man was taken to a hospital for treatment. No deputies were injured.

No further details were immediately available.
