Detectives search for suspected robbers who shot at deputies in Tampa, sheriff says

Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office detectives are looking for two suspects accused of robbing a Save a Lot and later shooting at deputies during a traffic stop.

"I'm grateful that our deputies and the employees at the Save a Lot were not harmed by these reckless and dangerous criminals," Sheriff Chad Chronister said in a statement. "I urge anyone with information to please contact the Sheriff's Office so that we may get these suspects off the street."

The robbery happened around 8:30 p.m. Sunday at a Save a Lot on W Fletcher Avenue in Tampa. The two men went into the store, filled up bags with groceries and tried to leave without paying, according to the sheriff's office. When confronted, one of the men threatened the employee with a shotgun, detectives said.
