TAMPA, Fla. – Tampa Police were dispatched to the intersection of N. Oregon Ave and W. Flora St just before 8:00 PM on Wednesday night for the report of the driver of a black, early 2000’s model VW Jetta firing a gun and hitting a red Toyota Camry.

At that time, the driver of the Jetta produced a gun, firing and hitting the Camry’s back window. Inside the Camry was a 5-year-old boy. Thankfully, no one was injured, police say.
The driver of the Jetta was described as a 25-30-year-old Hispanic or black male with a light complexion and a mustache, who was wearing a baseball cap.
