The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is working to identify a man believed to be the shooter in an incident that occurred outside of a hookah lounge on Sunday.
At 3:40 a.m. on March 21, a victim was seated in his vehicle outside the Sky Hookah Lounge, 7748 Hillsborough Avenue, where a party was underway. According to the victim, a suspect approached him with a gun and shot at his vehicle. The suspect quickly fled the area immediately after the shooting.
The victim was transported to a local hospital. He sustained non-life threading gunshot wounds.
The suspect, who was seen on surveillance cameras outside the lounge, is described as a white Hispanic male who was last seen wearing a red t-shirt, camouflage pants, and a men’s satchel. He is believed to have a half sleeve tattoo on his lower right arm.
“As we work through the exact cause of this shooting, our detectives are hopeful that surveillance video of the suspect will help to identify and locate him as quickly as possible,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “We are asking anyone who recognizes this individual to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office at 813-247-8200.”
