CLEARWATER, Florida -- The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office says deputies have shot and killed a man who confronted them with a shotgun.
Deputies on Sunday responded to a domestic situation at a home on Bugle Lane in Clearwater, the PCSO said. Shortly after arriving, they were allegedly confronted by a naked man armed with a shotgun.
Fearing for their safety and the safety of others, the two deputies shot and killed the man, 60-year-old Danny Meredith.
Meredith's wife told deputies they had a fight earlier in the day and she left the home to let the situation calm down. When she returned, she reportedly found a note on the front door threatening to shoot and kill anyone that came into the house.
Knowing guns were inside the residence, she called 9-1-1.
The deputies involved in the shooting were not injured and were placed on routine administrative leave.
