TAMPA, Florida-- July 14, 2012
Authorities say a 23-year-old man is dead and another person injured after being shot outside of a bar in Tampa.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office says Pablo Bonilla was inside the Whiskey Park North Bar Saturday at about 3 a.m. when he saw a man speaking with his girlfriend. Bonilla and the man got into a verbal confrontation but were separated before it escalated.
When the bar closed, Bonilla, his girlfriend and several other people were standing in the parking lot. That's when investigators say a car pulled up and a gunman got out and opened fire.
Bonilla and a second man were struck. Bonilla was taken to a local hospital where he died. The second victim is being treated and expected to survive. The suspect fled the scene.
