1 shot and killed in Hillsborough, deputies say

A male victim died after being shot near Spicer Place. The suspects are unknown.

TAMPA — One person is dead after a shooting Wednesday on the 12000 block of Spicer Place, according to authorities.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call at 4:42 p.m. from the TZM Bella Mar apartments after a resident heard gunshots.

Responders took the victim, who is male and in his 20s, to a local hospital, where he died.

Sheriff’s Office detectives said the shooting does not appear to be a random act and are examining security footage inside and outside of the apartment complex. Detectives said witnesses saw a white Kia sedan fleeing the apartment complex after the gunshots.

They ask anyone with information to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office at (813) 247-8200 or Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477) to be eligible for a cash reward.
