Suspect Charged With Murder In Ybor City Shooting

Suspect Charged With Murder In Ybor City Shooting

Tampa’s Police Chief says that they have arrested a suspect in connection to the Ybor City shooting that left two dead and 18 injured. 

The suspect identified as 22-year-old Tyrell Phillips is facing second-degree murder charges.

Tampa police say it happened just before 3 a.m. Sunday in the area of Tangra Nightclub in the 1600 block of E 7th Ave.

Police chief Lee Bercaw said the incident started with a dispute between two groups. According to them, one person died at the scene while the other died in the hospital. 

“This morning, it’s tragic that families have to wake up and see on the news what happened here tonight,” Bercaw said.

“We have to think about the families involved and the victims that were involved, and our hearts go out to them.”

More than four dozen officers were in the area during the investigation.

Emmitt Wilson said his 14-year-old son, Elijah, was one of the victims who was shot and killed. According to him, although his son was a good kid, he usually hung with the wrong crowd. 

“You never expect this to happen,” Wilson said. “It was multiple people shot and he happened to be one of the unfortunate to take this. I have to take this loss right now.”

In a post on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, Tampa Mayor Jane Castor said: “Yet again, a senseless loss of life by those choosing to settle a dispute with firearms. Lives lost and others forever changed. To what end? The Tampa Police Department had 50 officers deployed in the area at the time, so this is not a law enforcement issue.

“Bad decisions made in a split second and the proliferation of readily available guns are responsible for these almost daily incidents. We can affect one half of this equation.”
