Hillsborough County deputies have arrested two more men they say were involved in a shootout in Brandon last month.
According to investigators, the trouble all began in the mid-afternoon of June 10. Though details are sparse, deputies say they recovered several dozen shell casings at the scene as well as a magazine for a Smith & Wesson pistol. They did not specify whether anyone was injured in the affray.
Witnesses identified one man who was arrested soon after. The 21-year-old was apprehended two days later and booked into the Hillsborough County Jail on two counts of felon in possession of a firearm, and one count of discharging a firearm in public. The New York native was released the next day after posting a bond of $15,000.
The next arrest was almost a month later. On Wednesday of last week deputies apprehended a 24-year-old man and booked him into jail on two counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm, two counts of carrying a concealed firearm, one count of discharging a firearm on public or residential property, and six counts of violating probation. The Florida native continues to be held in custody without bail.
