Shooting leaves one dead, one wounded

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is looking for a man seen running from the scene of a fatal shooting that occurred Friday morning at a condominium complex north of Leto High School.

Deputies answered a call at Manhattan Palms Condominiums at 7210 N Manhattan Ave. just after 8 a.m. and said they found one male victim dead in a car and another male victim critically wounded nearby.

A man was seen running from the parking lot where the shooting took place, said Hillsborough sheriff's Col. Donna Lusczynski.

The critically injured victim, shot in the upper body, was taken to a local hospital for treatment. Deputies were not able to interview the victim, Lusczynski said.

"We don't know the circumstances at this point," she said.

The Sheriff's Office is asking anyone with information about Friday's shooting to call (813) 247-8200.
