The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office is conducting an investigation after a man was found dead Saturday in a community pool in New Port Richey.

A 22-year-old man was found unresponsive in the pool at 7510 Winpole Drive.

When deputies arrived, they pulled the man from the pool and began CPR efforts. The Pasco Fire Rescue arrived a short time later.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene after he could not be revived.
