Bliss was in an office talking with the pair regarding a dispute over their presence on the property, Hillsborough sheriffs Col. Donna Lusczynski said. The other man was his relative.

@HCSOSheriff confirms Richard Bliss was shot and killed at his family business, Bliss Enterprises, following ongoing dispute with 2 men he asked to leave their property.
