Walmart Shooting Suspect Arrested in NY

A man wanted in connection with an April shooting at the Fletcher Avenue Walmart has been arrested in New York.

Dylan Iwan Landvreugd, 19, of 914 North Bay St. E., was nabbed in the Bronx, NY, Tuesday by the U.S. Marshals Service, according to a news release from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office. He is being held at Rikers Island and awaiting extradition to Hillsborough County.

Authorities had issued a warrant for Landvreugd for aggravated battery with great bodily harm following an April 15 shooting at the Walmart on Fletcher Avenue. A verbal dispute with 21-year-old Travis Gray turned violent when Landvreugd followed Gray outside and shot the man twice with a 9mm handgun, authorities said.

Gray received non life-threatening injuries. The shooting was captured on surveillance video.
