TAMPA — A 14-year-old boy was fatally shot outside his home Saturday night at 4611 E Whiteway Drive.

Police identified the boy as Stephenn Santiago-Grey. He died at Tampa General Hospital after being shot in the chest.

Police took more than one suspect into custody, said Lt. John Preyer, but they had not established a motive.

Officers arrived at the house around 6 p.m. after several 911 calls.

At the house, they found a white car in the driveway with a door swung open. At least one bullet had hit the car.

Police found two guns, Preyer said, but he declined to say where exactly the guns were found.

"We're still trying to piece together what happened," he said.
