At approximately 6 a.m., on August 17, 2013, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office received a 9-1-1 call indicating a man had possibly been shot during a violent domestic altercation at 10103 Sherwood Lane in Brandon.
NOTE: The following summary of what occurred is being released as "preliminary information only" and is subject to change at a later time and/or date.
On August 17, 2013 at 6 a.m., the deceased, an adult male who lives inside the Grand Oaks Apartments (previously know as Sherwood Forrest Apartments) showed up at his adult girlfriend's apartment and became involved in a violent domestic altercation. The girlfriend's front window and front door sustained heavy damage from what appears to be caused from the deceased forcing his way into her residence.
During this confrontation, an adult female visiting her boyfriend who lives next door to the altercation, hears the glass and door breaking as well as screaming. The second female exits her apartment armed with a .45 caliber handgun and witnesses the deceased male beating a woman with a metal object while outside on the side walk. The second female attempts to intervene and yells at
the deceased to stop beating the woman. The deceased then turns and attacks the woman who was attempting to intervene. During that attack, the woman suffers multiple facial injuries before firing at least one round from the .45 caliber striking the deceased. The deceased staggers away from the scene and is found by deputies deceased in the parking lot.
Vickie Rock has been released from law enforcement custody. Once detectives have wrapped up their investigation, all evidentiary information will be presented to the Hillsborough County State Attorney's Office who will determine what charges may or may not be filed at a later date.
