Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Deputies are still investigating a shooting that occurred at the student housing complex The Edge on Saturday.
At approximately 1:15 a.m., Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to a shots-fired call at The Edge, located at 4200 East Fletcher Ave. When deputies arrived, they observed an estimated 75 people in the parking lot fleeing from an apparent fight, according to Debbie Carter, Public Information Officer with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.
HCSO deputies called USFPD to assist with crowd control, according to Meg Ross, University Police Public Information Officer.
“The party was in one of the banquet halls, located just off the pool,” said Sgt. Martin King, who was on duty that night. “There was a scuffle and one person fired several shots into the air/ceiling.”
King said witnesses reported that a fight erupted in the middle of the crowd, shots were fired and people dispersed. Carter said a glass door was shattered, though HCSO is unsure how the door was broken. No one was hurt during the incident.
Deputies questioned a few people, but they did not garner much information.
“Nobody saw anything, nobody saw anyone with a gun,” Carter said.
Management at The Edge was not available for comment, but a leasing agent did say action was taken against the person who hosted the party.
“The Edge does not believe that the person who fired the shots is an Edge resident,” the agent said.

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
