LARGO – A male was shot in the arm during an altercation at a Largo recreation center Sunday night.
Largo police responded to a call about a shooting about 7:39 p.m. July 20 at Bayhead Recreation Complex, 375 Seminole Blvd. The shooting occurred in the area of the skate park, police said.
Shortly before the shooting, a black male rode a bicycle into the area and started a verbal exchange with another male already in the park. After the two exchanged words, the man who arrived on the bicycle pulled out a gun and fired it, striking a juvenile male in the arm, resulting in non-life threatening injuries.
