ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — City crews tore down a house late Monday where a shootout hours earlier led to the deaths of two police officers and the man suspected of killing him.

A U.S. marshal also was wounded when police went to the house to investigate the brother of championship boxer Jeff Lacy, who had failed to appear at his trial on domestic violence charges last year. The marshal, who has not been identified and will recover, and two other officers initially went to the house but called for backup after discovering Hydra Lacy, 39, hiding in the attic of the house.
