Three people were shot, one fatally, in the Dade City area Wednesday afternoon, the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office reported.
The shooting occurred about 1 p.m. in the Johns Road area of Dade City. It started with a fistfight between two teen girls, and others soon joined in, Maj. Jeffrey Peake said during a news conference Wednesday evening.
“At some point, one or more people began firing their weapon,” he said.
A 16-year-old girl, an 11-year-old boy and the boy’s father all were shot, and the boy’s father died, Peake said.
