1 dead after deputy-involved shooting at St. Augustine home; 2 deputies placed on leave


ST. AUGUSTINE, Florida — Two St. Johns County Sheriff's Office deputies are on administrative leave after the fatal shooting of a suspect at a St. Augustine home.

Sheriff's Office spokesman Kevin Kelshaw says the deputies were responding to a domestic disturbance early Saturday. Kelshaw says shots had been fired at the home, and a female resident told deputies that Aaron Ray had possibly barricaded himself inside.

Kelshaw tells The Florida Times-Union ( ) that while establishing a perimeter, deputies encountered Ray, who refused to drop his weapon.

The deputies fired at Ray, who died at the scene. Neither deputy was injured. They were placed on administrative leave, which is standard practice after an officer-involved shooting.

The shooting remains under investigation.
