One dead, two wounded in separate Tampa shootings

TAMPA — A man died and two others were hospitalized early Monday after two separate shootings in Tampa.

The first happened about 1:20 a.m., when two men were shot in the area of W Waters Avenue and N Edison Street, police said. An officer on patrol heard gunshots and arrived to find Antonio Davis, 31, wounded near 8402 N Edison St. A short time later, officers found Dexter Price, 31, lying wounded a few blocks away, near Waters and N Florida Avenue, police said.

Davis and Price were both hospitalized. Their wounds were not life threatening, police said.

At 1:45 a.m., while officers were still investigating the first shooting, police were called to the Sugar Shack night club at 5110 N 40th St., where people reported hearing gunfire. Minutes later, police received a report that a man had arrived at St. Joseph's Hospital with a gunshot wound.

That man, Rodrick Randle Alexander, 32, later died.

Police said the shootings were not related. It was the second pair of armed attacks to occur within the last week in Tampa.

On Thursday night, two people were wounded in separate robberies in the University Square area. In the first case, a man armed with a handgun walked into the Best for Less restaurant at 11618 N 22nd St. and shot Noel Barnes, 53, police said. Barnes was later hospitalized.

Minutes later, Cory Smith, 18, was accosted by a man with a gun while riding a bicycle in the area of Linebaugh and Jasmine Avenues, police said. The man fired several shots, wounding Smith.

No arrests have been made in any of the shootings.
