Larry Dennis Hoad, 65, shot and wounded a resident in his triplex, then fired gunshots at another neighbor and a painter, the Sheriff’s Office said.
When Sgt. Matthew McLane responded to the report of shots fired, the agency said, Hoad fired at him, too.
The sergeant returned fire, wounding Hoad.
“This was a dangerous situation,” said Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri.
A deputy served Hoad with eviction papers at 9:30 a.m. , according to the Sheriff’s Office. The eviction was deemed peaceful but deputies were called back when gunshots were reported at 12:50 p.m.
Joseph Parazs, 50, who works at St. Pete Motorbikes on the corner of 49th Street and 46th Avenue N said his co-worker heard about seven or eight shots fired, and within minutes authorities were there.
