The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - WORLD -

LONGBOAT KEY, Fla. — Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the deaths of two men in an ap­par­ent “rob­bery gone bad” at a beach­side re­sort on Florida’s Gulf Coast.

Longboat Key Po­lice Chief Pete Cum­ming said dur­ing a news con­fer­ence Fri­day that of­fi­cers were called to Zota Beach Re­sort about 3 a.m. and found two bod­ies. Both men died of gun­shot wounds. He did not give de­tails. Cum­ming says in­ves­ti­ga­tors are gath­er­ing phys­i­cal ev­i­dence and surveil­lance video from cam­eras. He called the shoot­ing “iso­lated” and said he has “no con­cerns for res­i­dents or vis­i­tors on the is­land.” He did not say whether the men were guests at the re­sort, which opened June 23. Po­lice are in the process of no­ti­fy­ing rel­a­tives so the men’s names haven’t been re­leased.
