Man Who Shot Gay Pride Attendee with BB Gun While Yelling Homophobic Slurs Gets 6 Months


Cornelius Davis Jr. shot a man with a BB gun at St. Pete Pride last June while yelling homophobic slurs at a group of marchers.

The Tampa Bay Times reported:

According to a police report, Davis yelled a derogatory term for gay people at the man and a group of friends who were walking to the parade. He yelled that they should "put some clothes on" and that "this is a disgrace, there are kids around here," according to the report.

One man was hit with the BB but did not require hospitalization.

Davis was sentenced yesterday to six months in jail.
