He opened the door to find two men. They began to fight. One of the men pistol-whipped Sherry and then shot him, deputies said.

Sherry was taken to Florida Hospital Tampa, where he later died, officials said.

The two unidentified suspects remained at large Tuesday. Deputies believe they fled in a small- to mid-sized sedan that is beige or gold.
