TAMPA, FL (WFLA) - Deputies with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office are searching for as many as five suspects in a robbery/double shooting that occurred late Saturday night in the Plantation subdivision off Gunn Highway.

Two unidentified male victims suffered gunshot wounds and were transported to a local hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

According to a HCSO report the two men were going to visit a friend when they stopped in front of a residence in the 10000 block of Rosemount Dr. That’s where they saw a black male with dreadlocks standing in the roadway.

When they stopped the man jumped into the backseat of their vehicle. A dark-colored truck or Sports Utility Vehicle then drove up and parked in front of the victim’s car. Four men jumped out and took the men’s wallets, cell phones and jewelry.

Investigators say one or more of the suspects was armed. The driver of the victim’s vehicle put his car in reverse in an attempt to get away but instead struck two vehicles and a telephone pole.

At least one suspect fired into the victim’s vehicle hitting the driver and the front passenger. The man in the back was not hit and fled the scene.

An emergency medical services crew was dispatched to the scene and transported the injured.

No other information is available at this time.

If you have any information about this incident please contact the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.
