Democrat drives to friendís home and reportedly shoots him over political disagreement on Facebook

According to the victim, a political argument that began on Facebook ended with one man being shot this week.

What happened?

Authorities say the dispute between Alex Stephens, 46, and Brian Sebring, 44, both of Tampa, Florida, reached a crescendo when Sebring drove to Stephensí house and shot him in the thigh and buttocks. According to the victimís explanation to police, the confrontation was sparked over a political spat on social media.

Even though Stephens was the shooting victim, he might have played a part in provoking the confrontation. The Tampa Police Department said in an emailed summary that ďafter receiving several explicit messages and threats, the defendant responded to the victimís home to confront him.Ē

According to the report, Sebring anticipated that things would escalate, which is why he brought along his Glock for protection. Once at Stephensí house, Sebring allegedly honked his horn and waited by his truck. When the victim came outside, he reportedly rushed at Sebringís truck, at which point the accused fired upon him.


Stephens ran away and Sebring fled the scene, later turning himself in to police. He was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and carrying a concealed firearm, posted bond of $9,500 and was released from jail.

TPD Assistant Public Safety Information Coordinator Janelle McGregor clarified that the department has not fully confirmed whether politics were at play in the conflict between Stephens and Sebring, saying from the detectivesí point of view, ďa guy shot another guy and we arrested him.Ē

No evidence of an argument between the two was apparent from either of the menís public Facebook pages.

Whatís the background?

Both men attended Robinson High School in Tampa, but itís unclear how they knew each other. Sebring is a registered Democrat, and voting records do not show a registration for Stephens, who is a felon.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, jail records show that Sebring is a pizza delivery driver, and his Twitter account describes him as being married with two children.

Sounds like a couple of morons.
