One dead in Myakka shooting


At about 4 p.m., deputies responded to a fatal shooting at 44710 S.R. 70 E., Myakka City.


The shooting victim has been identified as Wilson Ngov, 43, of the above address. The suspect, Lim Chhea, 77, also of the above address, was arrested at the scene and charged with murder.

The suspect is the father-in-law of the victim. The two have recently been arguing over animals, and this apparently led to the shooting.
