They are suspected of being involved in the fatal shooting. Here is a closer look at all seven of them tonight. Investigators have received several tips that have brought them to this point and they hope to receive more tips from people who know these individuals.
Video and pictures have already helped police make one arrest of a 22-year-old named Tyrell Phillips, who is facing second-degree murder charges. Our reporter Kylie Jones has been following the story from the beginning and is live outside Tampa Police Department tonight. She will walk us through the newly released video. Over the past week, police have stated that they believe multiple individuals were responsible for the shooting.
The surveillance video we are about to see depicts the chaotic and crowded scene. The video shows the crowded streets of Ebor City, with six of the seven individuals circled in red. Tampa Police are seeking these individuals in connection with the deadly shooting on 7th Avenue on October 29th. Two fatalities and 16 injuries occurred that night, when a fight quickly escalated into a gun battle.
Chief Lee burov stated that police have increased patrols in Ebor City following the incident. Police are relying on the public’s help to identify these seven individuals. Close-up footage focuses on one man wearing a black hat and black shirt.
Tampa Police have received numerous tips, photos, and videos from the public that have aided them in identifying these persons of interest. Another video clip shows what appears to be a seventh person wearing a yellow sweatshirt and yellow sneakers.
The footage places him in close proximity to first responders assisting someone on the ground before he walks away. More video footage shows one of the men alone, wearing a black sweatshirt with a hood. He briefly stops before quickly running away from the scene. Here is a closer look at each of the seven men that the Tampa Police are searching for.
Tyrell Phillips has already been arrested and charged with second-degree murder. The community’s assistance in providing video evidence allowed for a swift arrest in this case.
Police are now looking for additional evidence and information, and encourage anyone with knowledge or recognition of the individuals in the footage to report it anonymously through the tip portal on fox13news.com. Information can also be reported anonymously to Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay, with the chance to receive a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
