Authorities seek 21-year-old suspect in Tampa shooting of teenager

TAMPA — Authorities Wednesday issued an arrest warrant for a 21-year-old man accused of the attempted first-degree murder of a teenager.

Oscar Trejo was seen Tuesday evening fighting with a group of five or six young men in Clair-Mel near his home, Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office officials said.

Shortly after 6:30 p.m., Trejo pulled out a gun in front of 2010 Waikiki Way and fired several shots, which hit an unidentified 17-year-old in the stomach, deputies said. The teenager ran to 1720 Warrington Way before collapsing in the front yard.

The teenager was in critical condition Wednesday at Tampa General Hospital, sheriff's spokesman Larry McKinnon said. The victim was not identified, McKinnon said, because he is a minor.

Trejo was first arrested at age 11 on charges of burglary and criminal mischief, according to Florida Department of Law Enforcement records. In 2004, he was sentenced to probation after adjudication was withheld on charges of burglary and larceny.

The Sheriff's Office asks anyone with information to call (813) 247-8200.
