News


ST. AUGUSTINE — A man has been found dead inside a home on Cabbage Hammock Road in St. Augustine Tuesday morning after St. Johns County SWAT replied to a home there, authorities said.

SJCSO deputies were first called to respond to a sick person in a ditch near the home, but when they arrived they said they heard gunshots from a nearby home.

Deputies then called SWAT and established a perimeter.

SJCSO said that evidence at the scene made it appear that the man died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, and that the man was home alone. Deputies stress the investigation is ongoing and say that the exact cause of the death is still being determined.

The neighborhood was evacuated as a precaution, SJCSO said.
