Craig Foushee, 52, barricaded himself in a home Thursday for more than 14 hours, according to an Osceola County Sheriff's Office report. He shot at deputies several times, but deputies never returned fire because they were unable to acquire a target and no deputies were injured, authorities said.
Deputies entered the home early Friday and found him dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Sheriff's spokeswoman Twis Lizasuain said there was no connection between Foushee and Matteo Patrick Giovanditto, who was found slain in a condominium Tuesday. That homicide was the first for Disney's master-planned, picture-perfect central Florida community with 11,000 residents.
Giovanditto lived alone with his Chihuahua and had been slain over the long Thanksgiving weekend, authorities said. Neighbors hadn't seen him for days, so they filed a missing person's report, then went into his condo a day later and found him.
Giovanditto's death was an isolated incident, Lizasuain said.
According to online records from the Florida Division of Corporations, a man with Foushee's name and address is listed as the owner of Reliant Protection Group, a security and investigations company. The records show the business was dissolved on Sept. 24.
A man with Foushee's name on the networking website LinkedIn showed that in addition to being in the security business, he was a pilot for American Airlines for nearly 20 years and an Air Force pilot.
In a Facebook profile, a man with Foushee's name and the hometown of Celebration, Fla., is shown has having three daughters, who he described as "my treasures." The Facebook page also shows that in April, he posted that he "went from being married to single."
Photos also depict him at firing range where people are shooting guns and doing what he described as "convoy/motorcase IED-scenario training." One photo has the caption: "Dept. of Defense Pre-Ddeployment Tactical Training."
