- One man is dead after a shooting and possible carjacking that happened Monday night in Clearwater.

Clearwater police tell FOX 13 News a group of people met at the Bank of America at the corner of Belcher and Belleair roads around 8 p.m. 

A woman called authorities and said her red Hyundai Veloster was stolen and she shot at the suspects.

A short time later, the car showed up at Mease Countryside Hospital.  Investigators say the driver wasn’t hurt, but the passenger had been shot and didn’t make it.
