Gibsonton, Florida -- Hillsborough Sheriff David Gee says a standoff with a possible murder suspect is over, as the bodies of a man and a woman were found inside a barricaded mobile home.

Sheriff Gee is not confirming that the deceased man is a suspect wanted on murder charges in Volusia County.

Earlier in the day, Hillsborough deputies say they, along with US Marshals, attempted to serve a warrant for the arrest of 29-year-old James Seagraves. The Hillsborough SWAT team and negotiators were called out to try and coax the suspect from the residence.

Officials initially said the suspect had barricaded himself inside along with his girlfriend, but deputies say they cannot confirm what relationship the deceased woman had with the man.

Police in DeLand, Florida say Seagraves is wanted for the shooting death of a restaurant manager. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports Tom Walsh's body was found inside the Mainstreet Grill back on April 1st.

Jail records show Seagraves has a long criminal history.

10 News will have more on this developing story.
