Steal My Bicycle? I Will Shoot You

From the St. Pete Times:

Police: Stolen bikes leads to shooting in Tampa
TAMPA -- A man was shot early this morning after confronting three people that he suspected of stealing his bicycle.

Robert E. Brown was shot in the shoulder by Darrielle Williams, police said.

About 1 a.m., Brown was watching TV with a friend at 1405 E Palifox when they discovered that their bicycles had been taken from the front yard. They saw three men with the bikes on N 15th Street and confronted them.

Williams later admitted shooting Brown, police said. He had hidden the gun beneath a car parked at 1508 E Ida St.

Brown was in stable condition at Tampa General Hospital.

The other two suspects got away with the bicycles.
