Shots fired after argument in Home Depot parking lot | News
Tampa, Florida -- Tampa Police say two men are facing charges after shots were fired in the parking lot of a local Home Depot hardware store.
According to reports, the incident happened around 1 p.m. at the Home Depot located on North Dale Mabry Highway, near Nordstrom Rack, Whole Foods, and Target.
Tampa Police tell 10 News Raymond Lindstrom and Latasha Strong got into a confrontation in the parking aisle after their two vehicles came too close to pass each other safely.
"Both of them were right here side-by-side. They stopped and it was like, 'Back up.' 'No, you back up,'" said TPD Chief Jane Castor while describing how the fight started.
The argument escalated when the woman's husband, Darrell Strong, arrived with his friend, John Christian, in another vehicle.
They confronted Lindstrom in his truck and the argument became physical. Lindstrom, who has a concealed weapons permit, pulled out a gun and the suspects ran away.
Lindstrom then tried to leave the parking lot, but accidentally drove to a dead end. He turned his truck around and again tried leaving the lot.
Meanwhile, police say Strong and Christian returned to their vehicle, where Strong pulled out his own gun. Strong, who also has a concealed weapons permit, then went to the front entrance of the parking lot and allegedly opened fire on Lindstrom's truck.
