Town 'N' Country, Florida-- Weeks after a security guard was shot at a local apartment complex, deputies say they need the public's help to identify a man seen in surveillance video from that night.
The shooting happened at the Royal Oaks Apartment complex on Sunday night, November 24. As previously reported, 50-year-old Ammar Al Nueimy told two trespassers to leave, when one of them pulled a gun and shot the security guard in his hand and chest.
Al Nueimy survived his injuries after being taken to the hospital, but the investigation into who pulled the trigger continues two weeks later.
Hillsborough County Sheriff's Officials say the man they are searching for can be seen in surveillance footage from a gas station near the crime scene. They do not believe he was involved in the shooting, but they say he may have valuable information in the investigation.
Deputies have also released the following descriptions of the shooting suspects:
- Hispanic Male
- 25-30 years of age
- Last seen wearing a dark green sweat shirt, a silver beenie or hoodie hat.
- White male
- 18-20 year of age
- Described as taller then suspect #1
- Last seen wearing a white t-shirt and tan shorts.
If you have information on the man in the surveillance video, or on either of the suspects, you're asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at 247-8200.
