A 27-year-old man was fa- tally wounded late Tuesday night. The shooting took place at the McDonald’s Restaurant, 11007 Bloomingdale Avenue.
According to the Hillsbor- ough County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were attempting to arrest Dylan Ray Scott on active warrants. The felony warrants were for grand theft and resisting arrest.
Deputies observed Scott parked in a pick-up truck in the parking lot of the McDon- ald’s Restaurant. An adult fe- male was also in the truck with Scott, police said.
Deputies approached the truck, made contact with Scott, and advised him of the warrants for his arrest. Scott turned on the ignition and in- tentionally accelerated the ve- hicle. He traveled over the parking lot curb, down a hill, and into traffic on Blooming- dale Avenue. At that point, he struck a silver minivan. They then provided assistance to the minivan driver. The driver was transported to a local hos- pital, complaining of chest pains after the accident.
Deputies also quickly es- corted the unidentified female passenger out of the truck and to safety. She was not injured.
Scott refused to get out of the truck and told deputies re- peatedly that he had a gun. Scott was also told several times to show his hands.
After several minutes of re- fusing to show his hands, Scott is alleged to have mo- tioned for a gun. At that point,
four deputies fired their serv- ice weapons, striking Scott. He was transported to Tampa General Hospital, where he died of his injuries.
None of the deputies, iden- tified as Sgt. Michael Han- naford, Cpl. Steven Schneider, Deputy Timo- thy Miskell, and Deputy Devin Wooden, were in- jured. They have been placed on administrative leave pend- ing the outcome of the investi- gation. Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister said all four deputies were wearing body cameras and the video will be released pending the investigation being con- ducted by the Florida Depart- ment of Law Enforcement (FDLE).
Scott’s arrest history in- cludes fleeing and attempting to elude police, reckless driv- ing, resisting an officer with vi- olence, resisting an officer without violence, burglary of an occupied dwelling, drug possession, and battery on a law enforcement officer, among others.
 There is no way to happiness, 6, 18, 27, 33, 48, 50. Hap- piness is the way. 8, 15, 22, 33, 58.
