Hillsborough deputies: Man shot in the face during drug deal

TAMPA — A 19-year-old man was shot in the face and injured Saturday afternoon during a drug deal, deputies said.

According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, two men arrived at the victim's home at the Lofts Apartments, 4050 Rocky Circle. Inside, deputies said, the suspects shot the victim once in the face and ran away.

The Sheriff's Office released a surveillance video showing two men following the victim through a door. The video later shows the men running out the door. Other people walk through the hallway before the victim staggers toward the door, eventually leaving.

The victim, Devyn Hardy, was taken to Tampa General Hospital. He was stable and expected to survive, deputies said.

Anyone with information on the crime was asked to call the Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200.
