Tampa Transwoman Shot, Shooter Faces Attempted Murder Charge

Bay News 9 reports a transwoman was shot in the 5000 block of Winnie Street N. on the morning of April 9.  A Tampa teen is being charged with attempted murder in the shooting.  Tavares Spencer, 16, is facing charges of attempted murder, robbery and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. The charges carry enhanced penalties because officials are considering this a hate crime.  Spencer was already in jail on previous charges when he was informed of his arrest for the shooting.

Full details can be found on the Bay News 9 website here.
