PLANT CITY — A domestic-related murder-suicide left two people dead Friday night in the Magnolia Hill neighborhood, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

At about 3:15 p.m., deputies received reports of shots fired in the 300 block of Wen Bar Circle. A man called 911, told dispatchers there had been a shooting and hung up.
