TAMPA, Fla. - The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is investigating a deadly shooting that took place at the Bella Mar Apartments. They're located near 127th Avenue East and Spicer Place in Tampa.
Deputies responded to a 911 call at 4:42 p.m. after the caller heard gunshots. They found a male victim in his 20's with a gunshot wound. He was transported to a local hospital where he died from his injuries.
