Neighbor Shot Man To Break Up Domestic Fight

BRANDON, Fla. (AP) — Authorities are investigating after they say a southwest Florida man was fatally shot during what appeared to be a domestic fight.

Hillsborough County Sheriff’s deputies said the unidentified man apparently broke down the door, forced his way into his girlfriend’s apartment and the two argued Saturday.

A woman in the next apartment heard screaming and grabbed a handgun. Authorities said the neighbor saw the man beating the woman with a metal object on the sidewalk. The neighbor screamed for him to stop. That’s when authorities said the man turned and attacked the neighbor. She suffered multiple injuries to her face before authorities said she shot him once.

Detectives are working with the state attorney’s office to determine whether any criminal charges may be filed.
