No charges for jogger in Town ‘N Country fatal shooting

“TAMPA – No charges will be filed against a Town ‘N Country man who fatally shot a teen he said confronted him during a late-night jog, Hillsborough County prosecutors said.

Thomas G. Baker, 28, told deputies he was jogging when two teens in dark clothing approached him about 1:30 a.m. Nov. 24 in the Pinehurst subdivision. A conversation turned into an argument, he said, and one of the teens punched him.

Baker told investigators he thought one of the teens had a gun and that he was going to be robbed. He pulled his .45-caliber pistol and shot Mustelier, 18, multiple times, authorities said.”
