TAMPA, Fla. — One person is dead in a shooting at nightclub overnight.
The shooting happened around 3 a.m. at the Aqua Lounge on Waters Avenue, just west of Dale Mabry Highway.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office says there was some sort of fight in the parking lot just after closing time. Security guards tried to break up the fight.
Deputies say at one point one of the patrons pulled out a gun, and a security guard shot the person, who died later at an area hospital.
The sheriff's office is interviewing several people. The security guards are cooperating.
Deputies say this nightclub just recently opened, and they didn't know of any issues since the place opened.
