Tampa, Florida -- Two men were shot Friday in Clair Mel, the Hillsborough Sheriff's Office reports.
The two were inside a pickup truck that stopped at a traffic stop on Causeway Boulevard just west of U.S. Highway 301S, and told the officer of the shooting.
"The driver of the truck opened his door and fell to the street with 2 gunshot wounds to the chest," said sheriff's spokesman Larry McKinnon. "His passenger also has a gunshot wound to the arm."
The two men were taken to the hospital in serious condition.
Preliminary information is that the shooting happened close by and may have been drug related, McKinnon said.
