St. Petersburg woman dies in home-invasion shooting

ST. PETERSBURG — A woman shot several times during a home invasion early Sunday in the Childs Park neighborhood died of her injuries, police said.

About 5 a.m., robbers burst in at a home at 4434 11th Ave. S, authorities said, and shot two victims inside.

Tamika Lashond Mack, 24, of St. Petersburg, was shot multiple times including in the head. She was pronounced dead at 9:30 a.m. at Bayfront Medical Center.

A 29-year-old man, Tore V. Holley, was also shot several times and ran to a neighbor's house. He was taken to Bayfront Medical Center, where his condition was not released. Police said he was stable.

Investigators said they believed two suspects were involved. A police spokesman said evidence at the house indicated the shooting had "drug overtones."

Mack worked at a nursing home and was a mother of two boys, aged 3 and 6, according to her Facebook profile. She attended Dixie Hollins High School and had studied at the Ultimate Medical Academy to become an X-ray technician.
