TAMPA, Fla. — Authorities in Tampa are searching for the suspect in a home robbery that left one person dead.  

Police say during the robbery one man suffered upper body trauma and died from his injuries. The suspect ran away from the scene, located in the 2400 block of W State St. 

“To do it in the daytime, when the kids are out, you know, it’s kind of crazy. Whoever it is was not scared to do it,” Kathy Castllo said.

Castllo lives a few streets away from where the crime happened and her friend lives a few houses down from it.

“The officers were all asking us questions like what we saw (and) what we know about that family, but thank God, you see this neighborhood here, a lot of people have cameras here,” Castllo said.
