Two die in dispute in Town 'N Country

Deputies shot and killed a man in Town 'N Country after they responded to a domestic dispute in which a woman was killed lat Sunday night, said Col. Ron Poindexter.

Three deputies responded to a call about 11 p.m. at 10404 Brigantine Blvd. in Town 'N Country, where they saw a man in front of the house shooting a woman, Poindexter said. She was killed.

When they told the man to put his weapon _ a rifle _ down, he turned to face them, raised his weapon, and the deputies shot and killed him.

Another man was found seriously wounded in the street and was taken by helicopter to a local hospital, Poindexter said. He was in critical condition.

Sheriff's officials would not release the names of the victims or deputies early Monday morning.
