Police tape marks the scene where a man was shot several times in the street Friday morning in the 2100 block of 12th Street S in St. Petersburg.

ST. PETERSBURG — One man was shot an estimated 12 times in the middle of the street in front of his house early Friday, police said. The gunman remains at large.

Vincent King, 29, of St. Petersburg, was taken to Bayfront Medical Center, where officials said he remained in serious but stable condition early Friday.

The shooting happened in the 2100 block of 12th Street S about 5:30 a.m., when several neighbors said they awoke to gunshots.

Jeffery Hines, 53, walked outside to see what had happened and saw a man lying in the middle of the street with a bloodied white T-shirt and khaki pants, he said. Shortly afterward, someone ran down a nearby alley, Hines said.

Police say they have a suspect in the shooting, but he remains at large.

It was not immediately known what led to the shooting, though police on scene speculated he and the gunman may know one another.
