According to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office, Antyone Askew was shot multiple times while at the Circle K at 1449 Paul S. Buchman Highway. The shooting took place around 6:08 p.m.
Deputies say a suspect was seen leaving the area in the victim’s older model black Mercedes, traveling south on Paul S. Buchman. The stolen car was abandoned in Plant City and had been burned, a sheriff’s office media release said.
Suspect information is not being released at this time.
Askew was taken to an undisclosed Bay area hospital where he is being treated for what sheriff’s officials describe as potentially life threatening injuries.
