LAKE MACK, Fla. -- - Lake County Sheriff's deputies shot and killed a man following a domestic disturbance call Sunday.
Authorities say they first responded to a call from the wife of 46-year-old William Paul Hill on Saturday afternoon. Hill was not there where deputies arrived, but his wife invited them into their home, where they found seven firearms and 400 rounds of ammunition.
On Sunday, a neighbor called authorities to say Hill was at their home. Deputies arrived and ordered Hill, a convicted felon, to come out of the home.
Deputies say Hill came onto the porch and put a gun to his head. Sheriff spokesman John Herrell says Hill threatened deputies and they opened fire.
Hill was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating.
