Hillsborough State Attorney's Office to review Tampa shooting case

TAMPA — The investigation of a shooting Thursday afternoon in front of a Tampa tire business was turned over to the Hillsborough State Attorney's Office on Friday to determine if a crime was committed.

Shamorcus Nesbitt, 27, remained hospitalized Friday after he was shot about 4:30 p.m. Thursday in front of 5217 E Broadway Ave. He was expected to survive, police said.

The man who police said shot him, Tairon Lashad Palma, 22, was not arrested.

Witnesses told detectives Nesbitt was following Palma before the two confronted each other and Palma fired shots, police said. The two had argued with each other earlier Thursday.

Palma stayed at scene after he shot Nesbitt and cooperated with detectives, police said.
