TAMPA — A 32-year-old Miami man has been charged with murder in connection with the April shooting death of Darius Jaquan Harris, court records show.

According to a Hillsborough County grand jury indictment filed Sept. 28, Williams shot Harris, 24, "with a premeditated design" on April 23.

The shooting happened about 8:20 a.m. at 1937 W. Union St. in West Tampa, police reported at the time. Officers arrived to find Harris injured, and he died at a local hospital. No other information was released at the time.

Details such as the relationship between the two men or a possible motive for the shooting were not immediately available Friday.

Jail records show Harris was on probation for a grand larceny at the time of his arrest.
