HOLIDAY, Fla. - A report of a sick individual turned into a barricaded situation for Pasco County deputies at a hotel. Deputes said the man "eventually peacefully surrendered."
According to the sheriff's office, deputies responded to the Fairfield Inn on U.S. 19 in Holiday to assist Pasco County Fire Rescue during a call for a "sick person." Then, that person "produced a firearm at deputies."
They said the individual barricaded himself inside a hotel room and wasn't cooperating with deputies.
Deputies said no shots were fired and there were no hostages. Nearby rooms were evacuated as a precaution.
Officials said this is not related to the search for Brian Laundrie, the person of interest in Gabby Petito's death.
