One man was shot early Tuesday morning after he and a friend say three people tried to rob them at a home in Kingsfield Estates, according to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office.
The two men, detectives say, got into a confrontation with the three suspects during an attempted robbery at a location in the 4200 block of Donnington Drive around 1:05 a.m.
During the argument, one of the men was shot in the leg. He was taken to a hospital with an injury that was not life threatening.
An investigation is ongoing, and detectives believe the incident may be drug related.
