An altercation outside a Tampa nightclub turned deadly early Sunday morning. Now deputies with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office are investigating.
At around 3 a.m., a fight broke out in the parking lot outside Aqua Lounge on the 4200 block of Waters Avenue, deputies said in a news release.
During the fight, “an individual displayed a firearm,” the release said.
Security guards outside the club interceded, and “at some point” during the scuffle, one of the guards shot a man in the “upper body," the release said.
The gunshot victim was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital, where he died.
The sheriff’s office did not identify the shooter or the victim.
No arrests have been made in the incident, which is under further investigation, the release said.
