Two St. Petersburg police officers and a gunman were fatally shot and a U.S. marshal was injured early Monday in gunfire that broke out as police tried to serve a domestic battery warrant at a St. Petersburg home.

“Our community has suffered a loss today,” St. Petersburg police Chief Chuck Harmon said during a somber press conference with Mayor Bill Foster outside Bayfront Medical Center.

Suncoast Benevolent Association President Mark Marland confirmed the fallen officers as Sgt. Tom Baitinger and Jeffrey Yaslowitz.
