[MICHAEL MAJCHROWICS | Times] THONOTOSASSA — The men involved in a shooting Tuesday afternoon at a Thonotosassa mansion were brothers Scott and Todd Tomlinson, Hillsborough Sheriff’s officials said. According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were alerted to a possible domestic situation at 11008 Smoken Gun Lane in Thonotosassa around 3:17 p.m. by a relative of Todd Tomlinson, 53, of Plant City. “Several commands were given to drop the weapon,” an email to media from the sheriff’s office stated. When Todd didn’t comply and raised the firearm, deputies “in fear for their lives” fired at him. “The suspect was struck multiple times and was pronounced dead at the scene.” Deputies then searched the home and found the body of Scott Tomlinson, 51, in the kitchen. As the deputies then went to investigate inside the house, his younger brother, Scott, 51, was found dead near the kitchen with multiple gunshot wounds.
