THONOTOSASSA, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a Tampa Bay-area man attacked his neighbor with a hammer and then barricaded himself in a mobile home.
Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office spokesman Larry McKinnon says deputies found the victim suffering from severe injuries Saturday afternoon at a Thonotosassa trailer park.
The victim was pronounced dead at a hospital.
McKinnon says the sheriff's office SWAT team was called to the home where the suspect was barricaded.
Authorities say the suspect surrendered after tear gas was shot into the mobile home. No additional information was released.
