BRANDON ⁠— A 35-year-old Seffner man faces a charge of second-degree murder after a fight turned into a fatal shooting on Tuesday, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

The wounded man, who was described only as being in his 30s, died of his injuries at the scene.

Hours later, Carldon Travis King Jr. was booked into the Orient Road Jail that evening. He is being held without bail.

The incident was reported at about 10:08 a.m. at a home along the 900 block of Edgedale Circle, off S Kingsway Road. A man who used to live at the home with a woman showed up Tuesday to pick up his personal belongings, deputies said. He encountered King, who was visiting.

The two men got into an altercation in the front yard. During that fight, the Sheriff’s Office said King shot the man who previously lived there. King called 911 and stayed at the scene until deputies arrived.

The Sheriff’s Office did not say what evidence led to King’s arrest, or release any other details about the shooting. The agency also did not release the name of the man who was killed.
