HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. – Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office Detectives are currently at the scene of a fatal shooting in the Nuccio area of Tampa.
Detectives have located the vehicle believed to have been involved in a homicide on the 6800 block of N 50th Street in Tampa.
Deputies responded to the Del Rio Apartments on Monday, May 29, 2023, shortly after 2:15 p.m. when calls came into the HCSO Communications Center about guns shots being heard. When deputies arrived they found a deceased male in front of the complex.
Through the course of the investigation, detectives discovered that a vehicle was traveling past the Del Rio Apartments and opened fire several times in the direction of the complex, and then drove away. Shortly thereafter, the vehicle in question was found and is now part of the investigation.
“Our detectives work hard to solve these cases, and ensure the violent criminals that terrorize our communities see justice,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “This shooting not only killed a man, but it endangered the lives of families who live and were enjoying their Memorial Day outside.”
Currently, there is no suspect in custody and no information as to the intended target of the drive-by shooting. It is unclear as to if the victim knew the people in the vehicle where the shots came from.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office continues to urge the public to reach out if they know anything about what happened in this fatal shooting. Those wishing to speak with our detectives can call 813-247-8200.
