TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – A shooting in Tampa’s Robles Park neighborhood left two people injured and landed three others behind bars early Tuesday morning.

Police responded to the 300 block of East Emily Street around 3 a.m. and found an unoccupied white Nissan that had crashed.

Police found a woman with a gunshot wound near the car and a man with a gunshot wound at a home nearby. The woman was critically wounded, police said. They were taken to a local hospital to be treated for their injuries.

Police said witnesses reported seeing the suspects flee westbound in a grey Toyota Tundra. Police spotted a vehicle matching the description in the area of East Fowler Avenue and McKinley Drive, but the driver refused to stop and tried to flee.
