The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said deputies responded to the Palms at Sand Lake at around 7:30 p.m. after a report of shots fired. 

Authorities said before the shooting an altercation took place in an apartment where three people were. That's when deputies said someone pulled out a gun and fired shots. 

Investigators said the victim, which was in their mid-20s, was rushed to Tampa General Hospital where they died.
