TAMPA — An argument escalated into a shooting in New Tampa on Tuesday afternoon that left one man in serious condition, according to the Tampa Police Department.
The shooting occurred at the 20100 block Weeping Laurel Place just after 1 p.m., police said.
A “verbal altercation” turned violent after 30-year-old Jeremy Green kicked the car of a man he knew and “caused damage,” police said. That prompted the other man to grab a bat from his garage and charge at Green in “an aggressive manner.”
Police said that’s when Green fired at the man, who was not named by police, seriously injuring him.
Green was transported to a nearby hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries, police said. He faces one count of aggravated assault and criminal mischief.
