Assisted by video, deputies arrest man for shooting in neighborhood near USF

TAMPA — Video from mounted surveillance cameras helped deputies identify and arrest a suspect Sunday in a shooting the previous morning in a neighborhood near the University of South Florida.

Tykeem Trotman, 24, of Tampa, was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon after he shot a man in the leg at the intersection of E 142nd Avenue and N 22nd Street and then fled the scene, according to an arrest report.

Hillsborough County Sheriff's deputies reviewed surveillance footage from a camera that's part of the Eye On Crime project — 20 cameras in the area monitored by law enforcement. They found a vehicle, described as a red BMW or Mercedes-Benz, fleeing the neighborhood of the shooting, spokesman Larry McKinnon said.

That vehicle matched the description of a car that was involved in a fight an hour earlier at a nearby Sunoco gas station.

Deputies pulled the details of an emergency call about the incident and the video from the fight at the Sunoco. Both the description of the car parked at the pump and the man pumping gas matched the surveillance footage from the shooting, McKinnon said.

Deputies arrested Trotman at 4 a.m. Sunday. He was being held at the Orient Road Jail in lieu of $7,500 bail.

The condition of the shooting victim was not available.
