HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. (CW44 News At 10)-- The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is investigating a homicide that occurred Wednesday night on Franklin Road in Plant City.

On September 29, 2021, at 3:50 p.m., HCSO received a 911 call reporting a man who was found unresponsive at a home on the 8200 block of  Franklin Road. When deputies arrived on the scene, they located an adult male in his 40s deceased from upper body trauma.

Neighbors told detectives they believe they heard gunshots coming from the residence between 12:30 p.m and 2:00 p.m.
