Murder warrant issued in Sulphur Springs shooting

TAMPA — Police were searching Sunday night for a man they say shot and killed another man during an altercation in Sulphur Springs.

Tampa police responded at 5:15 a.m. to a call about shots being fired at the intersection of N 13th and E Yukon streets.

There, officers found Edward Howard Jr., who had turned 21 just hours earlier, of Tampa. He died of his injuries.

Police did not release the circumstances of the fight that led to the shooting, but said they have obtained an arrest warrant for David Irvin, 18, also of Tampa.

Irvin is wanted for first-degree murder, police said, and is considered armed and dangerous.
