North Tampa shooting leaves one man dead

Times staff

TAMPA — A man was fatally shot Thursday afternoon after an argument with another man escalated, police said.

Antwan S. Dixon, 35, was found around 2:30 p.m. on E 93rd Avenue near N 9th Street, just east of Nebraska Avenue and north of Busch Boulevard, according to detectives. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital after suffering multiple gunshot wounds, Tampa police said.

Investigators said they had "promising leads" regarding the shooter, though no arrests were made Thursday night. The shooting did not appear to be random as the two likely knew each other, according to detectives.

Police asked anyone with information about the shooting to call (813) 231-6130.
