Investigators from the Hillsborough County Sheriff's office are trying to figure out if two deputies were the intended targets of an overnight shooting.
 
It happened around 1:30 a.m. near a 7-Eleven convenience store located near the intersection of Waters and Lewis.
 
A Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office major told Action News that 3 to 4 shots were fired.
 
One deputy had to dive into his cruiser for cover and the another had to duck behind a car.  Two bullets hit a concrete wall. 
 
Investigators are currently looking at surveillance video from nearby businesses for leads and possible suspect information.
 
It's believed the shots were fired from a small hand gun.
