The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s said one person is dead and several others were hurt after a drive-by shooting at a Tampa basketball court.
While investigating deputies found surveillance images of a vehicle. A 2008 silver, four-door Infinity vehicle which was stolen on Nov 5 was used in the shooting.
Deputies interrogated the witnesses. Reports say a large group of teenagers and young adults were on the basketball court when the silver Infinity drove by and opened fire.
“At some point, individuals on the sidewalk were also shot,” said Major Frank Losat with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office. “We don’t know if they were related to either group. We don’t know if this is a random act of violence or the people on the basketball court were the targets during this shooting.”
Deputies said a 36-year-old man was pronounced dead in the shooting. And the other seven people have suffered gunshots injuries and are in the hospital.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 813-247-8200.
