Suspect in Brandon Homicide Arrested

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office has made an arrest following a fatal shooting last week in Brandon, near Tampa.

On Friday, November 10, 2023, at 4:2pm, a call came into the HCSO Communications Center that a man had been shot near the Advanced Auto Parts off of Highview Road and East Dr. Martin Luther King Boulevard in Brandon, Florida.

When deputies arrived on the scene they encountered 24-year-old Gregory Hornsby and an adult man who was pronounced deceased at the scene.

After an extensive investigation, detectives determined there was an altercation between Hornsby and the victim that led to the shooting. Hornsby was arrested and transported to Orient Road Jail for booking.

Hornsby’s currently charged with the following:

  • Murder in the First Degree Premeditated Firearm
  • Aggravated Assault with Intent to Commit a Felony with a Weapon

“Murder is a heinous crime that should never be tolerated, and we must collectively condemn these actions,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “In the face of this darkness, I commend the dedication and efforts of our deputies who pursued justice in this investigation. Their commitment to upholding the law and ensuring the safety of our citizens is a testament to the strength of the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.”
