TAMPA — A man was shot and killed Tuesday evening after he tried to run a woman over in the parking lot of an apartment complex north of the University of South Florida, Tampa police said.

The incident happened about 7 p.m. in the parking lot of the Dawson Apartments complex at 15501 Bruce B. Downs Blvd. Witnesses told police they saw a man and a woman struggling over a car, with the man eventually gaining control of the vehicle.

After the man was behind the wheel, he tried to run the woman over. She fired into the car and struck the man, she told police.

The car then crashed into other vehicles at the complex before coming to a stop. Police said bystanders pulled the man from the car and gave him CPR. He did not have a pulse by the time first responders arrived and he was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

Police said the woman involved called 911 after the shot was fired and remained at the scene.

Neither the shooter nor the man killed was publicly named by police.
