MANASOTA KEY, Fla. -- A Four in Your Corner viewer is sharing photos of a dead hammerhead shark that washed up on Manasota Key.

Terri Ufko tells Fox 4 that the shark was seen on Blind Pass Beach near Englewood on Wednesday.  She says they saw stab wounds in the fish.

The police reportedly came out, but they don't know if a report was taken.

There are concerns on the community that a group of people are killing sharks in the area for fun.  There is also a report of a dead shark that washed up in Venice a few days ago.
