Mulberry, Florida -- Detectives are investigating a shooting in the Willow Oak neighborhood in Mulberry Thursday night that resulted in the death of a man due to an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Polk County Sheriff's deputies say around 9:50 p.m., the yet unidentified man fired multiple shots at a neighbor's house, went back inside his home, came back out and continued firing shots. He then went back inside but did not come back out.

When the members of the Polk County Sheriff's Office SWAT team arrived and got inside, they found the man dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Police say a neighbor, 52-year-old Fausia Castizo, was injured during the gunfire and was taken to Lakeland Regional Medical Center where she was treated and later released. The nature of her injuries is unclear whether they was the result of debris or fragments from the gunshots.
