TAMPA — Detectives were investigating Thursday after gunfire at a Tampa mobile home park left two men dead and two other people wounded.

Deputies responded about 1:18 a.m. to a report of a shooting at the Carousel Mobile Home Park at 5410 N Falkenburg Road and found one man dead in a common area of the park and a second man dead inside a home in the park, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

In the same home, deputies found a woman in her 60s with a gunshot wound. A fourth victim, a man in his 20s, was also found shot. Both were taken to a hospital and were listed in critical but stable condition.

“There were several people inside the trailer when shots rang out,” sheriff’s Col. James Bradford said.

The woman is the only known resident of the home, deputies said.

Investigators were searching for suspects, conducting interviews and obtaining a warrant to search the mobile home, Bradford said. Investigators do not believe there is a threat to the public.

Bradford asked anyone with information about the shooting to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office at (813) 247-8200.
