PLANT CITY — An argument over money on Saturday afternoon ended with one man shot, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, and another man in custody.

The Sheriff's Office did not identify anyone involved in the incident. It started when a man and woman went to 3405 Keene Road to reclaim some money and some property, according to deputies.

The visit turned violent, deputies said, and the Keene Road resident shot the visiting man in the thigh. Paramedics rushed to the home at 1:30 p.m. and took the wounded man to an unidentified hospital with non-life threatening injuries, deputies said.

A short time later, deputies spotted the alleged shooter in a car on Interstate 4 near Thonotosassa. He was arrested about three miles from his home and scene of the shooting. The Sheriff's Office did not release any other details about the incident, but did say that it did not appear to be gang-related.
