A section of 63rd Street N in Pinellas Park remains cordoned off by crime scene tape Wednesday morning as investigators work.

PINELLAS PARK — A man was found dead inside a Pinellas Park home late Tuesday after a SWAT team was called to the area after a fight, police said.

Paul A. Doyon Jr., 43, was found dead inside the home just after 11 p.m. He died from loss of blood from cuts on his body, the medical examiner determined Wednesday.

The incident began about 7:15 p.m. when officers responded to a report of a fight and possible shots near 78th Avenue N and 63rd Street N.

A man and woman who lived at 7860 63rd St. N. had gotten into a fight, officers said, and the woman left. Shortly after, three men related to her came to the house and confronted Doyon, who met them outside with a gun.

The four began to fight, police said. Doyon fired but no one was hit. He then tried to return to the house, which had been locked by one of the visiting men. So, police said, Doyon broke through a glass window.

He was alone inside the home when a SWAT officer called to him with a bullhorn. After receiving no response and detecting blood with a surveillance camera, the SWAT team found Doyon dead inside.

Police did not say if they believe Doyon took his own life or if he fatally cut himself while coming through the window.

The death remains under investigation, police said.
