The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the circumstances that led to a deadly shooting last night in Tampa.
On Sunday, January 10, 2021, shortly after 10:00 p.m., deputies responded to reports of shots fired at the Raintree Oaks Apartments located at 5605 Gibson Avenue in Tampa. When deputies arrived at the scene, they located evidence that a shooting had occurred in the parking lot of the apartment complex. No shooting victim was located there.
At this time, a male victim had been dropped off at a local hospital. The man arrived with upper body trauma and despite life-saving efforts, later succumbed to his injuries.
“Through investigative means, deputies have determined the two incidents are related,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “Deputies continue their investigation, interviewing witnesses and poring through evidence from the scene. We believe this is an isolated incident.”
