Man critically injured after Tampa shooting

TAMPA — A Tampa man was in critical condition after he was shot Tuesday night, according to police.

David Quirino, 30, was approached by an unknown man with a gun about 10:52 p.m. at Armilo Brothers Produce, 3001 E Hillsborough Ave., according to police.

Without saying anything, the gunman shot Quirino once in the lower torso, police said.

The unidentified man then pointed the weapon at Eric Lopez, also 30, who fled the area, according to police.

Quirino was taken to Tampa General Hospital, where he underwent surgery.

Police described the gunman as a black man, about 30 years old, 5 feet 9 inches and 180 pounds. He was wearing all black and a black do-rag.
