Three Shot In Florida Bar

Authorities say two members of a Tampa-area music group were among three people shot and killed inside a central Florida bar.

Polk County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Donna Wood says two members of Poison Dart, a group described on their MySpace page as "Reggae/Hip Hop/Roots" music performers, were gunned down shortly before 3 a.m. Saturday.

The group was at The Thunderbird Inn in Auburndale, which is about 50 miles east of Tampa.

Wood says 35-year-old Michael S. Rattigan of Riverview and 29-year-old Antone G. Neely of Tampa died from their injuries.

A third man described by authorities as an associate of the group, 29-year-old Kevin J. Webster of Deltona, was also slain.

The bar was crowded when the shooting took place. No arrests have been made.
