Man shot in back in Dade City


Argument leads to shooting, deputies say

Pasco deputies are investigating the shooting of a man in Dade City on Sunday. The man, who wasn't immediately identified, was reportedly shot in the back after an argument with a neighbor, according to the Sheriff's Office. Authorities are talking with the suspect and had not made an arrest Sunday night. Deputies arrived at 14748 Johns Road about 3:20 p.m. after getting reports of the shooting. The injured man, who is in his 60s, was flown to a Tampa area hospital. "He was conscious and alert," said Doug Tobin, a spokesman with the Sheriff's Office. "We're trying to sort out whether the shooter acted in self-defense or not. We're probably going to have to talk to the victim before we get a definitive answer."

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
