Police look for sedan involved in shooting at St. Petersburg intersection

ST. PETERSBURG — Police were searching for a group of men believed to have shot from a white, four-door sedan at another car at an intersection Sunday morning.

At about 11:10 a.m., officers were called to the scene of a two-car collision near the intersection of 22nd Street and 18th Avenue S, according to a police spokesman. An occupant of one of the vehicles, a Pontiac Sunbird, had multiple gunshot wounds.

Police determined that the Sunbird was stopped at a red light, heading south on 22nd Street, when the white sedan pulled up alongside. "At least two" of the occupants of the sedan began to fire guns at the Sunbird, authorities said.

The Sunbird's driver ran the red light in an effort to escape, crashing into a silver Chrysler LeBaron.

Suspects in the white sedan continued to fire after the crash, police said, but then fled.

The occupants of the Sunbird ran. But one of them, who had sustained gunshot wounds, collapsed. He was transported to a hospital and appeared to be stable Sunday afternoon, police said.

The driver of the LeBaron was not injured, although her car was struck by bullets.

Authorities have not disclosed the names of anyone involved.

Police asked that anyone with information about the incident call (727) 893-7780.

Peter Jamison can be reached at or (727) 445-4157.
