An argument in Pinellas Park allegedly ended in murder last week, landing a St. Petersburg man in jail on second-degree murder charges as a result.
Pinellas Park police say an argument erupted between a 40-year-old man and a 63-year-old man at a local apartment. Though no information has been released regarding the cause of the argument, authorities say they received a summons to the apartment by a caller to 9-1-1 reporting a man on the ground after a disturbance.
Per police, the 40-year-old man shot at the 63-year-old several times, striking him with multiple rounds, before fleeing the scene. The alleged assailant was at large over the weekend until his arrest on Monday evening. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail on two counts of felon in possession of a firearm, one count of armed robbery, one count of battery in a jail cell, and one count of second-degree murder. He continues to be held without bond.
