Because Of Winn Dixie

A Florida man has died after being shot in Bradenton.

The irony here is at least one of his friends was nearby when the victim was shot, but his friend decided to transport the victim to someplace other than a hospital.

The Manatee County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death of a 28-year-old man whose body was found outside Winn Dixie at 1910 53rd Ave E. in Bradenton.

Deputies responded to the grocery store Thursday around 6:30 p.m. and found the man, who had been shot, inside a parked vehicle, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

They learned that the shooting happened about one mile away in the 6100 block of 10th Street E. Another man brought the victim to the parking lot before notifying law enforcement.

I mean, I guess Winn Dixie does sell bandages, but I’m fairly certain they do not have a trauma ward. Oh well, at least the friend gave it the ol’ college try.
