TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - A man accused of fatally shooting a man at a Tampa mobile home park surrendered to authorities early Tuesday after barricading himself inside a house with a woman and five children, sheriff’s officials said.

Hillsborough County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call at the Campus Court Mobile Home Park around 10:30 p.m. Monday, and found a man with a gunshot wound, news outlets reported.

Deputies said the shooter then went into the home. A woman and five children ranging in age from 6 years to several months were inside.

A SWAT team and crisis negotiators made contact with the man and urged him to come outside.

About 2:30 a.m., deputies said the woman, children and the suspect came out of the house. The man peacefully surrendered to deputies.

The sheriff’s office has not released the names of those involved in the incident.
