St. Pete Brothers Facing Attempted Murder Charges After Argument Turns Violent


A pair of brothers from St. Petersburg are facing attempted murder charges for their alleged involvement in a shooting that left a man in critical condition.

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office says the brothers, one 38 years old and the other two years his junior, were in a verbal altercation with a third man on the afternoon of July 14 when the elder brother produced a firearm.

Authorities say he fired several shots at the 31-year-old victim, pointing to surveillance video they say shows the event. First responders found the victim in a grocery store parking lot and transported him to hospital where he was listed in critical but stable condition. Deputies did not specify a reason for the argument.

The siblings were arrested the following day and booked into the Pinellas County Jail. The elder brother was charged with attempted felony murder and continues to be held in lieu of a bond of $500,000. Local media reports an arrest record for him consisting of over two dozen drug-related arrests.

The younger brother was arrested the same day and booked into the Pinellas County Jail on a charge of attempted felony murder. He was released the next morning after posting a bond of $20,000. Local media reports a much shorter arrest record for him.
