LARGO, Fla. – The Largo Police Department is investigating the death of an adult man at Taylor Lake.

The victim’s identity is not being released until next of kin has been notified, police said.

At this time, detectives believe the victim was looking for frisbees in the water and a gator was involved. There are posted signs of no swimming in the lake.

FWC has been called and gator trappers are responding to Taylor Lake.

“Do not come out near Taylor Lake at this time,” said Largo Police Department. “Also, residents and visitors are reminded that you should not go swimming or near the lake at any time.”

This is still under investigation. We will update this story as more details are released.
