Incident Location: 5700 block of Steven Ct.

Details: On January 16, at approximately 12:32 PM, officers were dispatched to the 6700 block of Elm Ct. in reference to a report of someone being shot. When officers arrived, they located a 26-year-old man suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. The man was transported to a nearby hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. As officers were responding to Elm Ct., dispatch received a separate call from the 5700 block of Steven Ct. at 12:34 PM in reference to someone being shot. When officers arrived, they located a 27-year-old man suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. The man was transported to a nearby hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. The two calls appear to be related. Although early in the investigation, this does not appear to be a random act. Detectives ask for anyone with information to contact Crimestoppers of Tampa Bay at 1.888.873.TIPS (8477) or our non-emergency number at 813.231.6130. Updates will be provided as they become available.
