The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death of a man in Tampa.
On Monday, August 31, 2020, at approximately 4:00 p.m., witnesses described hearing gunshots on the 9300 block of Eden Drive. When deputies arrived, they discovered a man’s body lying on the front yard.
At this time, detectives believe this was the result of a domestic-related dispute. Preliminary evidence suggests a confrontation took place outside the residence and turned deadly when one person produced a handgun and shot the adult male victim.
Dectives are conducting interviews at this time. There is no threat to the public.
“A man is dead due to another person’s complete lack of civility and respect for human life,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “Our detectives are still working out the details of this violent encounter, but can confirm there is no threat to public safety. Anyone with information on the case is urged to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office at (813) 247-8200.”
