Violent Argument Yields Attempted Murder Charges For Tampa Man


An argument in New Tampa turned violent last week, resulting in critical gunshot wounds to one man and a charge of attempted murder for another man.

Hillsborough County authorities say a 28-year-old man and a 64-year-old man were at a home rented by the older man when a disagreement broke out on the morning of April 16. Though authorities did not reveal the nature of the disagreement, they said it abruptly became violent when the younger man entered the residence and emerged with a firearm in hand.

A witness said the younger man opened fire, striking the older man an unknown number of times. The younger man then reentered the home and reported the situation to 9-1-1. Deputies arrived shortly thereafter and took the suspect into custody.

Meanwhile, paramedics arrived to treat the wounded older man, whom they took to a local hospital. He was taken to a second hospital by helicopter not long after, where he was listed in critical condition. According to a police spokesperson, the victim had been renting the home for about seven months.

The suspect was booked into Hillsborough County Jail on a count of attempted first-degree murder. The Washington state native continues to be held in custody without bond.
