ST. AUGUSTINE BEACH, Fla. (AP) - St. Johns County sheriff’s deputies were involved in two officer-involved shootings in one week that left one man dead and another in critical condition.

On Thursday, deputies shot 53-year-old Carey Lloyd Martin in St. Augustine Beach after a woman called in a report that the man was suicidal.

The St. Augustine Record reports (https://bit.ly/1Gd2ZeS ) that deputies say Martin approached the doorway of a home and fired off multiple shots from a rifle.

The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office says the officers fired multiple shots at Martin, who survived and was in critical condition.

On Monday two deputies fatally shot 28-year-old Justin Way who they say was suicidal and armed with a knife.

Authorities say Way’s girlfriend had called 911 asking for help with his suicidal threats.
