TAMPA (WFLA) – The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is trying to figure out what led up to the shooting death of a man at a busy Tampa intersection.
Deputies were called to the intersection of Waters Avenue and Anderson Road in the Town ‘N’ Country area around 8:30 p.m. Thursday. When they got to the scene, deputies say they found a man’s body next to his vehicle in the westbound lanes of Waters Avenue.
According to a spokesperson for the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, the man had gotten out of his vehicle at some point at the traffic light and, for “unknown reasons,” another man shot him.
The man who was shot died at the scene. The sheriff’s office says he has not been identified yet.
Detectives say they immediately made contact with the shooter, who stayed at the scene.
“Detectives are currently questioning the shooter, who is cooperating,” Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister said in a statement. “Based on preliminary investigative details, the two men did not appear to know each other. We urge anyone who witnessed the incident, to please come forward.”
Anyone who has information is asked to call (813) 247-8200.
