TAMPA — A 24-year-old man was arrested in a shooting that took place earlier this week on busy E Fowler Avenue.

Andre Tyree Clemens was arrested Wednesday on two counts of attempted murder, discharging a firearm from a vehicle and being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to Tampa police.

The incident took place Monday at about 1 p.m., police said, when officers found a person shot on N 15th Street near E Fowler Avenue, just east of University Mall.

A dark blue Altima was seen driving away, headed south on N 15th Street.

Shaw Elementary and West University High School were placed on locked down during the incident. Officers treated the wounded person until Tampa Fire Rescue paramedics arrived to take them to a hospital.

Police released a video of the scene showing a sedan stopped on N 15th Street, the driver’s side window apparently shattered by gunfire.

Tampa police did not release any more information about the shooting on Dec. 9 or on Wednesday. Though Clemens faces two counts of attempted murder, police did not release the name of the wounded person or say if anyone else was targeted in the incident.

Clemens was being held without bail in the Hillsborough County jail.
