REPORT: Man shot in the rear end after heated political argument online

TAMPA – Two men disagreed about politics on Facebook. When things got heated, one showed up with a Glock and an AR-15 and shot the other in the thigh and buttocks, police said.
The article goes on to state the following:
It happened Monday night in Tampa, leading to the arrest of Brian Sebring, 44, of 4412 Leila Ave. on charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and carrying a concealed firearm.
Alex Stephens, 46, of 3002 Wallace Ave., was the victim, police said, though he may have had a role in ratcheting up the rhetoric. Sebring told officers Stephens threatened him.
“After receiving several explicit messages and threats, the defendant responded to the victim’s home to confront him [in] reference [to] the messages,” a police account said.
When Sebring arrived — wearing the Glock in a holster on his waistband — he honked his horn and waited by his truck for Stephens to appear.
Stephens came out of the home and charged toward Sebring, police said, and that’s when Sebring fired two shots with the Glock.
“The victim ran away and the defendant fled the scene,” police said
