Woman killed in Easter double shooting in St. Petersburg

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - A 24-year-old woman lost her life in an Easter morning double shooting in St. Petersburg.

According to the St. Petersburg Police Department, officers responded to a shooting call in the 4000 block of 11th Avenue S. around 5 a.m.

Officers discovered Tamika Lashond Mack inside a home after suffering multiple gunshot wounds, including one to her head.

A second victim, 29-year-old Tore V. Holley, was found at a neighbor's house with multiple gunshot wounds.

Both were transported to Bayfront Medical Center, where Mack later died from her injuries.

Holley is reportedly in stable condition.

Investigators say both Mack and Holley were in the house when a home invasion robbery occurred.

Both victims were apparently shot inside the home, but Holley was reportedly able to flee to a neighbor's house to seek help.

Detectives believe at least two suspects were involved, but information about them has not been released.

Evidence at the house does suggest the incident was possibly drug related, according to officials.
