Tampa, FL -- Surveillance video that police hoped would be one of their strongest leads in cracking a case is now no longer relevant.
After questioning the man shown in the surveillance video, investigators learned that he is neither a witness nor a suspect in last week's shooting of an honor student near Plant High School.
Students at Plant High are staying very aware of their surroundings as they walked to school in the dark on Thursday morning. Since the incident, security has stepped up campus patrols, reassuring students and faculty their safety is top priority.
"We always talk with our kids on being safe in the neighborhood and being outside of school and in school... but I've never experienced anything like this," said Principal Robert Nelson.
The shooter is still on the loose and Tampa police are still looking for leads. If you have any information that could help police find the shooter call Crimestoppers 1-800-873-TIPS.
