A gun versus shovel fight at a Pasco County nightclub has led to attempted murder charges.
According to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, the fight happened just after 2 a.m. Friday outside the Player's Club Bar at 18728 U.S. 19 in Hudson.
Deputies said Jonathan Luis Crespo, 22, is facing charges of attempted murder and armed robbery.
According to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, Thomas Allopenna, 26, had left the club and was in his truck when Crespo approached the driver's side and, without warning, fired five shots from a handgun into the window, hitting Allopenna three times.
Allopenna got out of the truck and grabbed Crespo, who yelled, "Give me all your [expletive]," deputies said.
A bystander saw what was happening and ran to help. Deputies said the bystander had a shovel, which he used to hit the suspect, and then Allopenna took the shovel and continued to beat Crespo.
Both Crespo and Allopenna were taken to a local hospital for treatment. Allopenna has injuries described as not life-threatening. Deputies said Crespo was unable to give a statement due to his injuries, and that he remains in the hospital.
The handgun used in the shooting was found on the sidewalk near Allopenna's truck, deputies said.
