The incident happened at about 4:30 a.m. ET on Saturday when a group of people was gathered in a parking lot on the north side of the Palace Lounge, which is located at 219 S Howard Avenue in southwest Tampa.

"Tampa Police are on the scene of a drive-by shooting that left one dead and possibly four others injured and taken to area hospitals," said Tampa police spokesman Steve Hegarty. "The shooting appears to have resulted from a dispute earlier."

Hegarty said investigators are interviewing a man who may have been the shooter, but no charges were filed as of late Saturday morning. The intersection at W Platt Street and S Howard Avenue is closed as the investigation continues.

Other details were not immediately available.
