1 Dead, 2 Injured In Shooting Outside Of Brandon Bar

BRANDON, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say an argument at a Tampa Bay-area bar over a woman’s lost purse led to a shooting that left one man dead and two others injured.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office says the purse belonged to the girlfriend of Louis Kuilan-Maysonet.

Authorities say the argument early Saturday continued outside the Boomerang Martini Bar in Brandon, where Kuilan-Maysonet shot another man several times. Meanwhile, a security guard saw the shooting and fired his own gun several times, shooting Kuilan-Maysonet.

The sheriff’s office says a third bar patron who had nothing to do with either confrontation was shot in the leg. It was unclear who shot him.

Kuilan-Maysonet died at a hospital. The two other men were hospitalized.

Authorities say the security guard had a valid concealed weapons permit.
