Seffner man faces attempted murder charge in shooting

HILLSBOROUGH — A Seffner man was arrested Thursday night in connection with a shooting where one man was shot in the leg.

On May 27 at about 5:30 p.m., the victim was driving in the 1000 block of Tiburon Drive when he was confronted by a man wearing a bullet-resistant vest. The man fired a gun several times into the victim's vehicle and shot him in the leg, court records show.

The victim told police he has known the gunman for more than 20 years and that the man had made death threats against him. He identified his attacker in a photo lineup.

The gunman was identified as 35-year-old James Freeman. He was arrested by Hillsborough County Sheriff's deputies about 5 p.m. on several charges, including attempted felony murder, aggravated battery and assault with a firearm, and possessing a firearm as a convicted felon.

He is being held at the Hillsborough County jail without bail.
