A 17-year-old boy was treated for two gunshot wounds to his back and discharged Tuesday from Tampa General Hospital following a fight with gunmen, who chased him to his Port Tampa home, Tampa police said. Andrea Flagler, 17, of 7004 Kissimmee St., told police he was driving his car when a chase ensued. Flagler said he was chased to his home at 9:15 p.m. Monday by at least two men driving a light gray two-door Datsun or Toyota with tinted windows. The men fired several shots when he got out of the car and hit Flagler twice, police said. Police were questioning Flagler on Tuesday about a possible fight between him and the gunmen that may have prompted the shooting.
