Man sets house on fire, kills responding deputy

(AP) — A man set his house on fire and then fatally shot a sheriff’s deputy and wounded another Saturday when they responded to the scene, before he was shot to death by other law enforcement officers, authorities said.

The gunman picked up the deputy’s gun, walked down the street and used it to shoot a second deputy before he was killed, Lt. James McQuaig of the Leon County Sheriff’s Office said.

The gunman was shot to death by a Tallahassee police officer who lived nearby and heard the initial shooting.

The shooting near Florida’s capital comes just two days after a police shootout at Florida State University left a gunman dead after he wounded two students and an employee.
