Shot from car kills driver

A 28-year-old Tampa man was fatally shot Saturday morning as he sat in his car and argued with people in another automobile parked alongside his in the 1400 block of E Hillsborough Avenue, Tampa police said.

Witnesses used a telephone booth to report the shooting at 3:46 a.m. Anthony Reed, of 2271 E Osborne St., died six hours later at St. Joseph's Hospital after undergoing emergency surgery, according to hospital records. Police say a bullet pierced the driver's side door of Reed's car and struck him in the left side.

Police officers say that Reed was apparently unarmed and that they knew no motive for the shooting.
