Man shot, wounded in argument near Brandon

BRANDON — A gunfight broke out in an apartment complex parking lot Monday, leaving at least one man wounded.

Jonathan Diaz, 31, suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was taken to Brandon Regional Hospital by his girlfriend, authorities said. Diaz was then flown to Tampa General Hospital, where he was stabilized.

Debbie Carter, a spokeswoman for the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, said investigators had not been able to question Diaz because of his medical condition and information on the shooter was scant.

Carter said the shooting took place about 5 p.m. outside of 1652 Providence Trace Circle, which is near Brandon. Diaz and the other man knew each other and were both armed and arguing, she said. Shots were fired, Carter said, but it was unknown if the other man was also injured.
