ONE MAN DEAD, ONE HURT IN SHOOTING

Police were investigating a double shooting Saturday night that left one man dead and another seriously wounded, authorities said.

The incident began in an East Tampa neighborhood and 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 Street, said Lt. Craig Sawicki. There, police found a man with two gunshot wounds to his lower abdomen, one to his upper left chest and one to his right calf, Sawicki said. That man, age 20, died later Saturday, police said.

Nearby, at the Tampa police District 3 headquarters, 3808 N 22nd St., authorities found another male victim. He'd been shot in the chest.

"One of the victims that was shot was transported by two to three individuals to our district office, where he was found around the front sidewalk area," Sawicki said. "I don't know if the victim got out of car by himself or if they helped him out of the car. They did flee the scene."

Emergency workers transported both men to Tampa General Hospital. The surviving victim, 29, was listed in stable condition late Saturday, Sawicki said. Neither man's identity was released late Saturday.

Police did not have a motive in the shootings, nor a description of any suspects.
