TAMPA, Fla. — The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is investigating a fatal shooting in a Tampa home Friday afternoon.
- 911 call reported shots fired

Deputies responded to a house located at 3675 Sugarcreek Drive after a 911 call came in at 11:49 a.m. reporting shots fired at the location, according to the sheriff's office.
Upon arrival, they found a woman at the location had been murdered. The 911 call came from another person who was inside the home at the time of the shooting.
"The initial call came from a male individual who was initially inside the residence when the shooting did occur," said Sheriff's Office Major Frank Losat. "We are interviewing him and he has given us a statement at this time to his involvement or no involvement."
Detectives are also searching a retention ditch behind the home for evidence.
The victim had two children, according to investigators. Neither of the children was home at the time of the shooting.
