TAMPA, Fla. – An apparent murder-suicide on Monday morning left two people dead at Florida Hospital in Tampa, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said.Deputies located and secured the room where they found a man dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound and a female suffering from a gunshot wound. Authorities said she received immediate medical attention, but later died. “They identified where the threat was and that it was eliminated and then secured the scene and just made sure all the surrounding patients and everybody else was okay,” Lusczynski said. A hospital employee, who was on the second floor at the time of the shooting, said officials initially made them evacuate the building, but then allowed them back inside, saying all was clear.

According to Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Donna Lusczynski, the 41-year-old woman was shot in a third-floor hospital room and was immediately taken to the emergency room, where she later died.
