GIBSONTON, FLA. -- Law enforcement authorities in the community of Gibsonton say a convicted felon, suspected in a shooting, was found dead in a home after an afternoon standoff.
Detectives say James Seagraves and his girlfriend, Kayla Nemoto, had barricaded themselves inside a mobile home in the Tampa Bay area neighborhood.
Authorities say negotiators lost contact with the couple; approximately two hours after failure to reestablish contact, SWAT team members went inside the mobile home.
Hillsborough County sheriff's officials said the SWAT team found the bodies of Seagraves and Nemoto.
Nemoto was seven months pregnant.
Investigators said no shots were ever fired by the authorities.
Investigators say they had been serving a warrant at the mobile home against Seagraves, in connection with the shooting death of DeLand resident Thomas Walsh.
According to investigators, Walsh was shot during a robbery at the popular Main Street Grill in downtown DeLand.
Detectives said Seagraves was a known violent felon who had been released from prison this March.
