Man Shot by Police at Veterans Hospital Identified
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - The FBI has identified the man fatally shot by police at a St. Petersburg veterans hospital.
FBI spokesman Dave Couvertier said 68-year-old Vincent L. Young went into a lobby and told someone he had a bomb.
Young allegedly brandished a knife and threatened officers with the Bay Pines VA Police Department when they arrived at the scene.
According to investigators, Young lunged at the officers, who then fired at him. Young was treated in the emergency center but died.
A backpack Young had with him had a PVC pipe with him that looked like a bomb. Parts of the hospital were evacuated as bomb experts inspected the pipe. It was later determined to be a hoax.
The man's motives remain unknown.
