The Tampa Police Department has partnered with the Federal Bureau of Investigation to launch a new web-based portal to submit tips related to the fatal Sunday morning shooting on 7th Ave. This portal allows members of the public to submit text, photos, and/or videos that will be routed directly to investigators. 

The site is available at fbi.gov/tampashooting

Tyrell Stephen Phillips (W/M 08/05/2009), was taken into custody on Sunday, October 29, 2023. Based on the current evidence collected, detectives believe there are two additional suspects who appear to have fired several gunshots.

“We are truly grateful for the support of our community and all the tips they have provided investigators so far," said Chief Lee Bercaw. "We have partnered with the FBI to launch this website to make submitting additional tips easier. We encourage anyone who may have information to go to fbi.gov/tampashooting and submit any photos or videos that could aid in the investigation. Even if you are not sure if the tip will be helpful, it may be just the evidence our detectives need.” 

This remains an active and ongoing investigation. Detectives continue to gather evidence and develop leads to determine what led to the shooting and identify and apprehend all parties involved. Detectives urge anyone who was in the area near the time of the shooting on Sunday, October 29, to review the video or photos they may have taken that morning and submit them through the new website portal so investigators can review them and find justice for the victims.
