Manatee man wanted on attempted murder charge

MANATEE — The Manatee County Sheriff's Office obtained a warrant charging a 22-year-old man with attempted murder after detectives say he shot another man late Tuesday.

About 11:50 p.m., the suspect, Oscar L. Mabry, walked up to the 22-year-old victim, who was standing outside a residence in the 400 block of 61st Avenue East, and shot him in the legs, according to a sheriff's report.

The victim told detectives that Mabry earlier in the day placed a gun in his face, but he didn't report it to law enforcement, according to the sheriff's office.
