4 Arrested Following Clearwater Beach Shootings

CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — Four men face multiple charges after two people were injured in a Memorial Day shooting on Clearwater Beach.

Clearwater police spokeswoman Joelle Castelli says the Monday evening shootings arose from fights between groups of people. She says the first shots were fired by a group of people in a temporary parking garage near the Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa. The other group was in the street.

Castelli says at least two people were shot — one in the hand and the other in the groin area. She says the person who was shot in the hand fled the area.

Access to the beach was cut off for a time, but later reopened only to residents. The Hyatt was also closed as investigators searched room by room.
