TAMPA — A Tampa man has turned himself in to deputies after officials announced he was wanted for first-degree murder.

Rodney Dejontae Speights, 22, was wanted in connection with an incident where a Tampa man was shot after a fight outside a convenience store, Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said.

Osh Totter Williams, of Tampa, got into a fight with Speights on Sunday outside a Snack Attack Food Store at N 50th Street near Sligh Avenue, according to a sheriff's office report.
