Man dies after shooting near Tampa

TAMPA — A man was fatally shot during an argument Wednesday night near Town 'N Country, authorities said.

Hillsborough County sheriff's deputies said the shooting happened about 6:30 p.m. at 9110 Post Oak Court. Two men who had an ongoing dispute showed up at that address and began an altercation.

Investigators said the fight led Israel Sanchez, 49, who lives nearby, to shoot Daniel Crespo, 21, who authorities said also had lived nearby at one point. Crespo was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital, where he later died.

Late Wednesday, Sanchez was being detained and interviewed by detectives, the Sheriff's Office said, but no charges had been announced.
