The man who fled on a bicycle after a deadly shooting in Progress Village this morning is now behind bars.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office arrested Kenyatta Bethley, 34, and charged him with second-degree murder in the death of 49-year-old Nathaniel Brewer. He was arrested at a friend's house in Brandon without incident.
Colonel Donna Lusczynski with the sheriff's office says it started as an argument inside an apartment between Bethley and Brewer, who was there to see Bethley's mother. The argument spilled into the parking lot, where Brewer was shot several times in the chest and head.
"We haven't had anything like this around here before," offered neighbor Javier Rivera, who has lived in the apartment complex for the past five years and was surprised by the violence. "Everybody gets along for the most part."
Both the victim and suspect have extensive criminal records.
Detectives are still talking with witnesses trying to figure out what exactly led up to the deadly shooting.
