Tallahassee, FL - One man is dead and another injured after a shooting in Tallahassee. Police have not confirmed the names of the man who died or the identity of the person injured. However-- we spoke with family of the deceased-- now looking for answers.

Geneva Rowls received the call that her brother 18 year old Henry Trico was dead just moments after shots were fired.

Distraught she explained, "All I know is it's another lost soul in my family." It all started here at Sunrise Apartments off Texas Street in Tallahassee around 2:30 Tuesday afternoon.

Police say they were called to break up an argument between men behind Building G. According to his mother Henry just walked out for just a minute he rounded the corner of Building G, and that was the last time she ever saw him alive.

Henry's mother Marsha Trico explained, "Next thing I know I hear shots, I see his two friends running back. I asked them where Henry at and they say 'They shot him' I come-- I jump off the porch I come back. My son is dead."

The Tallahassee Police Department says another man was injured, adding the suspect is still on the loose. One neighbor said, "Yeah I'm worried. They are running around here with M-16s. The Po-Po. Yes I am worried."

The incident brought out hoards of people-- all trying to find out which one of their neighbors were shot. Most were reluctant to go on camera.

TPD has not confirmed Henry was the man who died, but tonight his family mourned.

Henry's sister, Geneva Rowls said, "There are so many rumors going on around here you just would not even know whats going on 'til the police leave and somebody going to talk."

We are still working to update the condition of the other person who was shot.

If you have any information the Tallahassee Police Department is asking you to call the Crimestoppers hot line: (830)-574-TIPS
