Media Contact : Brian Bruchey, PIO

The Polk County Sheriff's Office is investigating a shooting which occurred on Tuesday, April 12, 2022 on a residential street off of South Combee Road, in the Eaton Park area of Lakeland.

At about 7:15 p.m., bullets struck multiple houses, but fortunately, there were no injuries. 
There were four suspects who exited a gray 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee and began shooting at a home. The suspects got back into the Jeep and fled the area.

Detectives would like to speak with 22-year old Aurthur Taylor (pictured) about what he might know about this case.

If you have any information regarding Mr. Taylor's whereabouts, please contact Detective Ellerbe at 863-499-2400 (Case #22-15809).
