Warrant issued in Tampa fatal shooting

Tampa police have issued a warrant for a man after another man was found shot to death in the front yard of Tampa home early Wednesday, police said.

Antonio Javon Screen, 29, 3210 E. Ida St, is wanted for second-degree murder, felon in possession and aggravated assault, police said.

Officers responded about 4:30 a.m. to calls about a shooting at Screen’s home and found the body of Eric Best, 35, 1026 Goodwin Court.

“There was some type of altercation at the home and the suspect shot the victim,” Tampa police spokeswoman Andrea Davis said in a news release.

Investigators were interviewing people in the home to determine the cause of the altercation, Davis said.

“The victim and the suspect knew each other,” Davis said.
