Jerome Edward Hayes, 48, turned himself in to authorities Monday, after a deadly shooting in Tampa on Saturday.

Authorities said Hayes is accused of shooting Fred Turner. Turner was on the phone with a 911 dispatcher saying someone he didn’t know was chasing him with a gun.

Sheriff’s deputies said Hayes thought Turner was a man he got into a fight with at a strip club.

He’s charged with first-degree murder.
