ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- A security guard has been found slain at a St. Petersburg apartment complex.

Police spokesman Mike Puetz says Critical Intervention Services reported around 2 a.m. Monday that they were unable to contact or
locate a security guard at the Mariners Point Apartments.

Officers found 26-year-old Mathew Little of Tampa lying near the
complex's pool and tennis court area about an hour after gunshots
were reported in the area.

Puetz says Little had been shot at least once above his bulletproof vest.

Little was pronounced dead at the scene.

The security firm's CEO tells the St. Petersburg Times that Little checked out to go on foot patrol just before 1 a.m.

Puetz says Little's gun was missing from his holster but
detectives concluded that he wasn't shot with his own weapon.
