PLANT CITY, Florida -- Detectives are investigating a shooting that happened at 1:30 p.m. Saturday at a home on Keene Road.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said a man and his girlfriend went to the home to recover money and property from a man who lives at that address. A fight between the two men allegedly broke out, and the homeowner shot the visiting man in the thigh.

Paramedics took the man to the hospital, where he is being treated for non life-threatening injuries.

Deputies say they caught up with the suspect a short time later after spotting him in a car at I-4 and Thonotosassa, 2-3 miles from the scene of the shooting. He is now in custody.

Deputies are still investigating the incident, but say they are ruling out any gang-related connections.
