Second man arrested after shooting last month near Tampa

TAMPA — Authorities have arrested a second man accused of participating in a violent drug deal near Tampa last month.

On Jan. 21, Glenn Leonard David, 18, and Jonathan Murphy, 22, went into an apartment at 4050 Rocky Circle for drugs, sheriff's deputies say.

Once inside, Murphy pulled a handgun and shot Devyn Hardy, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office. The pair then fled.

Hardy, 19, was taken to the hospital and survived.

Murphy, of Punta Gorda, was arrested shortly after the shooting. David, of Tampa, was picked up recently in DeSoto County.

He was booked into a Hillsborough jail Monday and faces charges of attempted murder and aggravated battery.
