Tampa shooting leaves one dead, two injured

TAMPA — Police were looking for suspects late Tuesday in a shooting that killed one and injured two others, a department spokeswoman said.

Officers responded to reports of a shooting around 9 p.m. near the 2900 block of E 22nd Avenue, just north of Interstate 4.

The names and ages of the three male victims had not been released. The body of the victim who was killed was discovered between two duplexes in the neighborhood, said police spokeswoman Laura McElroy.

One of the victims was seriously injured and one suffered minor wounds. The victim with the most minor injuries ran from the scene to his home, she said.

Police had not announced any arrests late Tuesday. McElroy said investigators believe there are multiple suspects involved.
