Police name victims of Tampa shooting that killed one, injured two

TAMPA — Police have identified the three men who were shot — one of them dead — Tuesday night outside a house just north of Interstate 4.

When officers arrived at the house at 2906 E 22nd Ave. about 9 p.m., they found Dexter Jermane Gardner, 26, dead.

Thomas Causei, 41, who lives at the home, sustained serious injuries, but was reported to be stable, Tampa police said.

A third victim, Bertran Sampson, 26, ran to his home with minor injuries.

Earlier Tuesday night, the men were outside Causei's home when several gunmen approached, fired at them and drove off in a car, police said. Detectives believe it was not a random act.

Anyone with information was asked to call Tampa police at (813) 231-6130.
