Authorities in Florida are investigating another death in the town that Disney built. This time it’s a man who apparently killed himself after shooting at deputies.

An Osceola County Sheriff’s Office report says 52-year-old Craig Foushee barricaded himself in a home in Celebration on Thursday for more than 14 hours. Authorities say he shot at deputies several times.

Deputies entered the home early Friday and found him dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. No deputies were injured.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Twis Lizasuain says there is no connection between Foushee and Matteo Patrick Giovanditto, who was found slain in a condominium earlier this week. That homicide was the first for the community that’s five miles south of Walt Disney World.
