(Scroll down for video) Police are looking for a man, who fled his home after shooting a man over dog poop.

The incident began with an argument between neighbors over dog poop in Florida.

Police were called about 12:35 p.m., after the man was shot in Tampa. Police said that the suspect, whose name has not been released, was irritated about dog poop in his yard and asked his neighbors to clean it up.

The dog owner told police that she went inside to get some things so that she can clean up her dog’s mess from her neighbor’s yard.

However, it seemed like the irritated neighbor thought she was running from her responsibility. He pulled a gun and shot the woman’s friend.

Police revealed that Dante Roberson, 30, was shot and taken to Tampa General Hospital. He was reported to be in stable condition. The dog does not belong to Roberson nor does it live at the home where the shooting took place, according to police.

Police are looking for the shooter, but have not released his name because he ran from the scene.
