PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office deputies are investigating a fatal shooting at a mobile home park near West Palm Beach.

Deputies received a call about a man shooting a gun shortly after 6 a.m. Sunday at the Tavares Cove mobile home park.

When deputies arrived along the 6100 block of Calle Del Sol, they quickly detained a man they found carrying a handgun, sheriff's spokeswoman Teri Barbera said.

Deputies then located the body of a man.

Barbera said they believe the suspected gunman, Miguel Colon Rodriguez, 67, and the victim knew each other and were the only two people involved in the shooting.
