PALATKA, Fla. -

A man was shot multiple times Friday morning during a physical fight with another man in Putnam County.

Sheriff's deputies who responded to the 400 block of East Bay Street in Palatka shortly after 6 a.m. Friday say Tromell (T.J.) Camps arrived at a home on Bay Street.  When Domanic Gaines answered the door, a physical altercation ensued.

After a brief tussle, Camps was shot multiple times, according to the Putnam County Sheriff's Office.  Camps fled the scene on foot and was later transported to the Putnam Community Medical Center by a relative.  Due to the seriousness of his injuries, he was transported to Shands Medical Center at the University of Florida and his condition is unknown at this time.

Gaines was transported to the Detective Bureau and is cooperating with law enforcement.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement was notified and will process the crime scene.
