Tampa, Florida -- One person is dead and another two are injured after police say they were victims of two separate armed robberies in Tampa Saturday night.
The first took place around 9:30 p.m. off of Amelia Avenue, while the other happened at the Extended Stay America Hotel off Spruce Street about thirty minutes later.
"I was just shocked," said a woman who didn't want to show her face on camera. She's lived along Amelia Avenue in Tampa for 27 years.
"I couldn't believe it," she said.
She said Saturday night her peaceful street turned into a crime scene.
"It sounded like fireworks. That stuff never happens."
Police say right across the street, a group of people were outside barbecuing when two black males shot two of the guests after they attempted to rob them.
The suspects fled and police are trying to figure out if they then went to the Extended Stay American Hotel on Spruce Street.
Police say two black males driving a gray F-150 attempted to rob two hotel guests, 33-year-old Nicholas Bravo and 41-year-old Agustin Pacheco.
Pacheco refused to give them any money. He was shot and killed.
"I'm nervous to come out," says Cathy Robb, a guest at the hotel.
Now guests here at the hotel and those living along Amelia Avenue are just hoping who's ever responsible for the violent crimes are caught.
Police again trying to figure out if these are related. Anyone with information is asked to call police.
