BRANDON, Fla. (FOX 13) – Hillsborough County deputies are searching for the gunman who killed a man outside a party at an Airbnb rental house.

Neighbors had no idea the house was an Airbnb rental property.

He says the Brandon community is quiet and family-friendly. This shooting, he says, is out of character and disturbing.
