Tampa juvenile with active warrant shot in the rear

TAMPA — Police had been after a juvenile in connection with an armed robbery. But it was a gun that got him into trouble Monday night.

Tampa police gave this account:

A 17-year-old and a friend were driving a Chevrolet truck at the corner of N 36th Street and E Mohawk Avenue near the Live Oaks Square neighborhood when they started fighting with a third person, reportedly about drugs.

The unknown person pulled out a pistol and fired it at the truck. The 17-year-old ran from the truck and was shot in the buttocks.

When officers arrived, they found a Chevrolet truck dotted with bullet holes and crashed into a fence. Another 911 call guided police to the boy, and he was taken to Tampa General Hospital. His injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.

The 17-year-old has an active warrant for robbery with a gun and other charges. He'll be booked with these charges once he's out of the hospital.

His 16-year-old friend had minor injuries to his face. He was released to his mother.
