ESPANOLA, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say members of a U.S. Marshals Task Fugitive Force fatally shot a 24-year-old man while trying to serve a warrant at a rural north Florida home.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports Corey Levert Tanner was the primary suspect in the July 23 death of a Flagler County man. Flagler County Undersheriff Rick Staly says the task force was called and had tracked Tanner to Espanola, where the shooting occurred on Wednesday.
The shooting happened at the home of Tanner's sister-in-law.
Tanner was facing attempted first-degree murder and aggravated assault and battery charges.
Tanner's step-father Ernest Williams told the News-Journal authorities could have "done it in a different way."
The U.S. Marshals Service released few details about the incident.
