TAMPA — Tampa police are investigating two separate shootings that occurred within 30 minutes of each other Saturday evening.

The first took place at about 4:30 p.m. in North Ybor. About 30 minutes later, a man was killed in a shooting in Sulphur Springs.

Tampa police released few details about either shooting Saturday night, citing ongoing investigations. The agency confirmed that investigators were pursuing leads in both cases. They hadn’t said whether they had found a connection between the two shootings.

Officers responded to the first call near the intersection of East 17th Avenue and North 21st Street in the North Ybor neighborhood. They found a man shot in the upper body. He was taken to a nearby hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

The second shooting occurred about 5 miles away in the 8500 block of North 15th Street in Sulphur Springs.

Police officers arrived at the scene by 5 p.m. and once again discovered an adult male, also shot in the upper body. The second victim was rushed to Tampa General Hospital, but later died from his injuries, police said.

The Tampa Police Department asks anyone with information to call (813) 276-3200 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477).
