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."
