KENNETH CITY, Fla. (WFLA) – After getting into an argument with his ex-girlfriend, a man fired a handgun into a crowd, police say.

Robert Oden, who police describe as a “known suspect,” argued with his ex in the 5300 block of 59th Circle E in Kenneth City Wednesday.

“The girlfriend who was standing with friends and family demanded Robert to leave the area,” police said. “Robert produced a handgun and shot several times towards the crowd.”

The shots struck two people. One was taken to Bayfront Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. The second was grazed but not transported to a hospital.

Kenneth City Police Department detectives are working with the Hillsborough County State Attorney’s Office to obtain a warrant.

Police said Oden is believed to have left the area. He’s considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information should contact his or her local police department or sheriff’s office.
