Security guard shot at apartment complex

TAMPA, Fla. (970 WFLA) -- Hillsborough County Sheriff's deputies said they are investigating a shooting that occurred at the Royal Oaks Apartments located at 7307 Casitas Court in Tampa.

Deputies said at 10:00 p.m. Sunday, a security guard was walking his rounds at the apartment complex when he told two men between two buildings that they would have to leave because they were trespassing. 

Then deputies said one of the individuals produced a gun and fired several shots at the security guard, striking him twice, once in the torso and in the hand. 

The suspects then fled the scene, according to deputies, and the security guard was taken to the hospital where detectives were able to interview him.
