SEFFNER — The people hanging out across the street seemed to be getting along when David Chandler and his brother went to sleep Wednesday night.
Several were gathered around the single-wide mobile home at 1005 Lianne Place, talking and listening to rock music, said David Chandler, who is staying with his brother Tommy. They went to sleep about 8 p.m.
"It was all mellow yellow over there," David Chandler said. "All I heard was music and them talking."
Two hours later, the gathering took a violent turn when a man shot two brothers, one of them fatally, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.
William Edgar McCallister, 42, was killed, deputies said. His brother David Jack McCallister was hospitalized with at least one gunshot wound that deputies say is not life-threatening. The McCallisters lived together on Don Creek Drive in Riverview.
The shooter, who has not been identified, called 911 about 10 p.m. to report the incident and remained at the scene until deputies arrived.
The shooter also was taken to the hospital with a medical issue, Sheriff's Office spokesman Larry McKinnon said. The Sheriff's Office did not release his name Thursday because detectives had not conducted a full interview, McKinnon said.
"We still need to interview the gunshot victim that remains at the hospital and we still need to interview the shooter to determine whether there was any justification in the shooting or whether or not any charges will be pending," he said.
Investigators believe the three men know one another but were still working to find out what led to the gunfire.
The owner of the mobile home is Martin Alfred Johnson, according to the Hillsborough County Property Appraiser's Office. Records show Johnson is 76 and has owned the home since 2002.
