Tampa, Florida -- One woman is dead and a man is in critical condition after a home invasion shooting on N. Brooks Street in Tampa.

Tampa police were reportedly called out early Sunday after reports of shots heard in the area. When officers arrived, they found a man lying on the sidewalk in front of 8212 N. Brooks Street with what appeared to be multiple gunshot wounds.

Officers found another person also shot inside the home next door.

According to the victims who were inside the home, two masked suspects armed with handguns came into the residence via an unlocked front door. The suspects allegedly ordered a woman who had her 4-year-old child with her in the living room to get down on the floor. Hearing the commotion, a man reportedly emerged from a bedroom and police say shots were then fired.

The man and woman who were shot were taken to Tampa General Hospital, where the woman later died from her injuries. The man is in critical condition and unresponsive at this time.
