PENSACOLA, Florida — A gunfight in a motel occurred Wednesday morning leaving one man dead.

Deputy Jason Ates and another deputy were looking for a Pensacola man, Michael Scott Lee, whom a family member called for help because of concerns for his safety.

Lee was tracked by the Escambia County deputies because of a debit card purchase that led the deputies to the motel.

According to the report from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Michael Scott Lee was killed and Deputy Jason Ates suffered a gunshot wound in the upper thigh at a Motel 6 where the deputies found Lee and an unidentified woman at Lee’s motel room.
