MANATEE — Two men said they were shot at while playing basketball early this morning in the 2100 block of 47th Avenue West, Bradenton, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office. However, they apparently were unable to get the details of the shooting straight.
The men told deputies they were shooting hoops when they were approached by a green 4-door Toyota with three masked men inside. One pulled a gun and fired several shots. No one was injured, according to a sheriff's news release.
"No shell casings were found on scene and there were discrepancies between the victims as to the number of shots fired, where each of them were at the time of the shots being fired and the color and type of the weapons involved," the release stated.
