Tampa police investigate fatal drive-by shooting


Man, 20, is killed in drive-by shooting

A man was shot to death early Tuesday while standing in the driveway of a home, according to Tampa police.

Stephon Reyshad Roundtree, 20, was standing in front of 3628 E Mohawk Ave. in East Tampa just after midnight when someone in a passing car fired a gun at him, police said. He died in the driveway.

Homicide detectives were investigating. No arrests have been announced and the motive for the shooting was not immediately known.

No one answered the door to a reporter Tuesday morning at the yellow, single-story house.

At least five bullet holes could be seen in the home's garage door after police had left.
