A woman died after being shot in a Tampa bar early this morning, and police are looking for the two suspects.

Shortly after midnight, two men walked into the Picadily Sports Bar at 2806 E Busch Blvd. in Tampa, and the victim, Stephanie Butler, 39, confronted them, Tampa police said.

Butler, of 2903 W. Waters Ave. in Tampa, was shot, and the suspects took off north on 28th Street in a white SUV, police reported.
