Hillsborough sheriff's deputies shot and killed a man toting a sawed-off shotgun Monday night in his neighborhood.
Neighbors called 911 about 9 p.m. to report that a man was shooting a gun at 1602 Maydell Drive, south of 16th Avenue S. The man apparently lived at the address, said sheriff's spokeswoman Debbie Carter.
Deputies responded, and the man confronted them, Carter said. The deputies gave several commands to drop the gun.
"He pointed the gun at them and refused to put the gun down," Sheriff David Gee told reporters at the scene.
Additional details were unavailable late Monday.
