ONE MAN DEAD, ANOTHER HURT IN SHOOTING

TAMPA

Police were investigating a shooting Saturday night that left one man dead and another seriously wounded. The incident in East Tampa ended with one victim being dropped off in front of the police District 3 office, authorities said. Just after 8:30 p.m. Saturday, Tampa police received word that five or six shots were fired in front of a home in the 1500 block of E Emma St., said Lt. Craig Sawicki. There, police found a 20-year-old man with two gunshot wounds to his abdomen, one to his left chest and one to his calf, Sawicki said. He died later Saturday, police said. Nearby, at the Tampa police District 3 headquarters, 3808 N 22nd St., authorities found a man, 29, shot in the chest. He was in stable condition late Saturday at Tampa General, Sawicki said. Neither man's identity was released late Saturday.

TREASURE ISLAND

A 50- to 60-foot boat carrying 12 people took on water and sank near Treasure Island shortly after 6 p.m. Saturday, but the Coast Guard and a good Samaritan helped the passengers to safety, said Coast Guard spokesman Robert Simpson. Passengers called 911 on the charter fishing boat, the Sun Seeker, about 6 p.m. as it was about a half-mile west of John's Pass. The Coast Guard sent out a call for help, and a boater came to the rescue. A Coast Guard patrol arrived shortly afterward, and helped the remaining passengers before the boat sank about 6:15 p.m. Passengers were taken to the dock at Gator's Cafe & Saloon, where authorities and paramedics met them. No one had reported injuries, Simpson said.
