NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. (AP) - Deputies shot and killed a New Port Richey man after he allegedly threatened to kill his wife and fired at a SWAT team.
Pasco County Sheriff's Office deputies were called to the Tampa Bay area home Friday at about 9 p.m.
When a responding deputy arrived, 62-year-old Robert William Kaminski allegedly pointed a weapon in the deputy's direction. He then went back into the home. The man's wife had already fled the scene.
A SWAT team and crisis management negotiators arrived and began a dialogue with the suspect.
According to investigators, sometime before midnight Kaminski exited the house and shot multiple rounds from an AK-47 at deputies, who returned fire. Kaminski was killed.
Two deputies sustained minor injuries from shrapnel wounds.
