Plant City police name Sunday night shooting suspect

PLANT CITY — Police are looking for a 20-year-old man in connection with a Sunday night shooting in Plant City that injured four people.

Luis Acosta faces four counts of attempted murder, according to the Plant City Police Department.

Police say the shooting started with an argument. They haven't said what it was about, only that during the disagreement outside the Woodbridge at Walden Lake apartment complex, Acosta pulled out a gun and started shooting.

Four people were hit: Sheraye Hicks, 20, Hugo Alverez, 17, Dilworth Gilley, 18, and Derrick Reese.

Acosta lives in the apartment complex. He fled the scene on foot, police say. State records show that his only other arrests in Florida were in 2009, when he twice was arrested for driving with a license from another state while his Florida license was suspended. He was convicted both times and was sentenced to probation.

Plant City police ask that anyone with information about Sunday's shooting or Acosta's whereabouts call Detective James Shultz at (813)757-9200.
