What’s the line about people with knives messing around with people with guns?
RUSKIN, Fla. — A man who attacked a woman and someone she called for help with a knife was shot to death, deputies say.
Law enforcement responded just after 12:30 a.m. Sunday to the area of 7th Street SW and Oceanside Circle on a call about a shooting, according to a Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office news release.
Deputies found the man dead with a gunshot wound in the front yard.
It’s believed he attacked a woman with a knife earlier in the evening. She called another male acquaintance for help and at some point, the two men began arguing outside the home, the sheriff’s office says.
The man with a knife stabbed the other before getting shot.
Deputies say the man stabbed was taken to Tampa General Hospital, where he’s listed in stable condition. The woman also was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
No charges have been filed, however, an investigation is ongoing.
A woman was shot after attacking a nightclub owner with a knife, Fort Lauderdale police said.
It happened about 10 p.m. Friday at 905 N.E. Fifth St., said Detective Tracy Figone.
The woman was taken to a hospital and treated for a single gunshot wound, Ficone said.
It was not immediately known what charges were pending because the investigation was ongoing, she said.
The incident occurred in Flagler Village at the Glitch Bar, an adult arcade — also known as a “bar-cade” — with free pinball machines and video games and themed alcoholic beverages.
“The Glitch Bar experience can be defined as part local watering hole, part vintage arcade and part late night party,” according to its website.
The Glitch Bar’s co-owners are identified as Dwight Slamp and Chris Guevara but police did not say who was involved in the shooting or who the woman was.
