Saint Petersburg, Fla.-(970 WFLA)-Police say a man upset over being fired as a security guard shot his ex boss at the New Plaza Motel on 34th Street, North.

Police say 45 year-old Anthony Taylor also lived at the motel and was being evicted when he opened fire on night manager Jerome Horacek.  The 47 year-old Horacek was shot several times in the upper torso, but was treated and released from Bayfront Medical Center.

After the shooting, police say Taylor went to a vacant lot in the 34 hundred block of 3rd Avenue, North, and shot and killed himself.

Police also say Taylor shot out the window glass at the motel office being running off.
