BRADENTON, Fla. — Manatee County deputies are investigating a deputy-involved shooting in Bradenton.

According to the sheriff's office, around 9:20 p.m., deputies responded to a domestic disturbance between Corey Mobley and his wife at a gas station in the 3000 block of Cortez Road W. in Bradenton.

When deputies arrived, Mobley fled the scene in a vehicle.  A short time later Mobley pulled into a residence in the 6300 block of 6th Street W. Deputies say that Mobley got out of the vehicle and ran behind a nearby residence. Deputies chased after him on foot.

According to witnesses, Mobley was yelling that he had a gun and was seen reaching into his pocket.  At that time, a deputy shot Mobley.

"The deputy gave him every opportunity to remove his hands from his waistband and surrender," said Sheriff Rick Wells.

The Mobley was taken to Sarasota Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced deceased.  

The deputy will be on routine administrative leave as the investigation continues.
