Gunman shoots man, then self, deputies say
Pasco deputies say a dispute between two men ended when one shot the other and turned the gun on himself early Thursday morning. Detectives believe Josh Moragne, 21, shot Kevin Floyd, 22, in the chest with a handgun before shooting himself in the head in front of 39809 Cole Ave. Deputies found the men lying in the street around 1 a.m. Both were sent by helicopter to a hospital near Tampa, where they remained in stable but critical condition, deputies said. Detectives initially suspected the dispute began over a woman but now say they don't know the motive.
