Tampa police are investigating a shooting at the Red Roof Inn located at 2307 E. Busch Boulevard. This is just across the street from Busch Gardens.

According to police, 29-year-old Michael Porter of Winter Haven was in room 242 of the hotel with an unidentified female when the suspect approached the room, banged on the door and fired shots through the window.

The female fled the room and got into a vehicle parked in the parking lot and left the scene. A hotel front desk employee then called 9-1-1.
