2 shot, 2 in custody at Clearwater Beach

CLEARWATER BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A city spokeswoman says two people have been shot and two people are in custody after three shootings on Clearwater Beach, including outside the Hyatt Regency.

Joelle Castelli says in an email that the shootings Monday arose from fights between people and do not appear to be random. She says the first call came in at 6:48 p.m.

She says one person who was shot has been taken to a nearby Tampa Bay hospital and the other left the scene.

She says access to the beach has been cut off and that only people who show proof of residency will be let over the bridge.

Police are still searching the beach area.
