DEL RIO, Fla. — The search is on for a shooter after they ran off after a crash Monday evening in Del Rio, located near Tampa.

Deputies responded around 9:30 p.m. to the area of East Sligh Avenue and North 50th Street, where they found two cars that crashed and a man who had been shot, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies said the man, in his 30s, was taken to Tampa General Hospital and later died.

It's believed the gunman was in one of the cars that crashed. Two other people involved in the crash suffered minor injuries, the sheriff's office said.
