CLEARWATER, Fla. — One person is dead and three others are hospitalized following a shooting near the intersection of Drew Street and U.S. 19. in Clearwater.

Authorities say one man was transported by helicopter to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa. That victim later died from his injuries.

Paramedics transported the other three victims to Bayfront by ambulance.
