Shooting victim found at Steak 'n Shake in Tampa

- One person was found shot in the parking lot of a Steak ‘n Shake in Tampa, and deputies are investigating who pulled the trigger.

Early Wednesday morning, a ‘Shotspotter,’ technology which detects gunshots, alerted the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office of a possible shooting north of Fowler Avenue. However, deputies couldn’t find any evidence of a shooting at the time, officials say.

Within minutes, a man with a gunshot wound pulled up to the restaurant on 15th Street and Fowler Avenue. He has non-life threatening injuries, according to deputies, and was transported to a nearby hospital.

No other information has been provided, including a suspect description.
