Deputies: Deadly shooting may have been self-defense

Bradenton, Florida -- A man was shot to death after a fight broke out inside a Manatee County home, deputies say.

The Sheriff's Office says 20-year-old Kerson Edmond went to the residence on 30th Lane East in Bradenton early Sunday morning, and got into an argument with one of the residents, 33-year-old Olivia Sauceda.

Witnesses told investigators that the argument became physical and Edmonds, who was armed with a handgun, began to beat Sauceda.

That's when another resident, 34-year-old Ryan Harmon, pulled out a gun and shot Edmond.

Edmond died at the scene.

So far, no one has been charged with the shooting, as detectives investigate the possibility that it was done in self-defense.
