HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) — Two high school students were shot Wednesday night near an Amazon building in Hillsborough County, the sheriff’s office said.

Deputies said they were called to the Amazon Delivery Station at Harney Road and Hillsborough Avenue around 9 p.m. Wednesday for a report of a shooting.

“We’ve learned through our investigation that this all stemmed from a fight the students planned to meet at this location with Amazon,” said Fentress Fountain with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office. “It has nothing to do with Amazon.”

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said a group of six teens were gathered near the Amazon building when a fight broke out and shots were fired. The suspects reportedly got into a black Kia Soul and fled the scene.

Investigators said they found one 19-year-old victim at the scene. They were transported to the hospital hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Deputies were called to a nearby Arby’s restaurant on Hillsborough Ave. to treat a second victim, a 17-year-old, who was driven there by friends. The sheriff’s office said that victim is expected to survive.

“Everyone involved in this incident they’re all known to each other and they’re all students between the age of 17 and 19 at an area high school,” said Fountain.

There is no ongoing threat to the public.
