Hillsborough deputies investigating fatal Ruskin shooting

RUSKIN — Deputies are investigating the death of a man found in a yard at a migrant camp Saturday night.

At about 11:15 p.m., deputies responded to a mobile home park at 719 NE 19th Ave. where they found the man in front of Lot 49.

Neighbors told deputies the victim had gotten into a confrontation with an unknown man at a party within the park earlier in the night. The victim left the party and the other man followed a few minutes later. About a half hour later, neighbors heard gunshots.

The victim was found some time later, deputies said. He does not live at Lot 49, but is believed to live within the park. His name has not yet been released.

Deputies were searching for the other man.
