A home invasion led to a police pursuit ending in a Tampa skate park late Wednesday. Two of four suspects were in custody as of Thursday afternoon.

Tampa Police say the four armed and masked suspects forced their way into a home on the 1900 block of East Genesee Street. One shot was fired during the home invasion, but it didn't hit anyone. 

A victim was pistol whipped and taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Following the home invasion, officers saw suspects flee the area of the crime. 

Police say they were driving a stolen rental car, a Kia Sol, from Tampa International Airport. An airport spokesperson says the vehicle was stolen from the Hertz rental car fleet. 

That vehicle ended up at the Bro Bowl skate park off of East Scott Street. 

Two suspects were taken into custody after a brief foot pursuit. Those arrested are 21-year-old Daniel Luis Santana and 24-year-old Bradley Scott Kincaid. Police are still searching for the other two suspects.

"At this point, we're still trying to figure out exactly how they targeted that particular house," said TPD spokesperson, Stephen Hegarty. "We have the victims, as well as two of the defendants that we're wanting to talk to try to sort that all out."

Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay is offering a $3,000 for information that leads to the identification and arrest of suspects in this case. Anyone with information is asked to call 1-800-873-TIPS (8477) or report anonymously online at

The iconic skate park, meanwhile, was just refurbished last summer.
