Fight over a dog escalates into gunfire; man is killed

PALM RIVER — One man is dead and another is at Tampa General Hospital with life-threatening injuries after an ongoing neighborhood dispute ended in gunfire Thursday afternoon, sheriff's deputies said.

The two men were shot following an argument about a dog, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

Paramedics responded to the call at 5:41 p.m. at 5718 S 16th Ave.

The men, whom deputies have not identified publicly, were taken to Tampa General Hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Tasha Won, 28, of Thonotosassa, said her cousins, the house's residents, were approached by the men earlier in the day and deputies were called. She said the men returned later but she was unclear how the shooting took place.

No one was arrested or charged late Thursday night.
