Fatal Florida Church Shooting #Bradenton
Authorities say a fatal shooting at a Florida church and two deaths at a home across town are connected and they are looking to question a 33-year-old man. The Manatee County Sheriff’s Office says deputies discovered one body at Bayshore Baptist Church in Bradenton Thursday afternoon. While at that scene, deputies learned about the other two victims.
Detectives say they want to question 33-year-old Andres “Andy” Avalos, who was last seen near the church driving a gold Chevrolet Suburban. None of the victims were immediately named, but the church’s website lists Amber Avalos as an employee. The Bradenton Herald ( http://goo.gl/W8zH6y ) reports that four schools were on lockdown for a time after the shooting but that was later lifted. Bradenton is about 35 miles south of Tampa along Florida’s Gulf coast.
