Mystery shrouded the recent death of a 14-year-old who was run over by a vehicle driven by an injured woman. Further, the 20-year-old woman behind the wheel had a gunshot wound following a physical altercation that reportedly happened around 9:30 p.m. in the Carrollwood neighborhood in Tampa Bay, Florida.

Ironically, the incident happened just 6 miles north of where Super Bowl LV was being held. Authorities were alerted of the incident and immediately responded to The Place at Carrollwood apartment complex.

According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, the 14-year-old boy and the 20-year-old woman got into a physical altercation before the latter ran over the teenager with the vehicle.

“At some point, shots were fired toward the driver,” the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office stated. “The woman, in her early twenties, was transported to the Citrus Park Emergency Room, where she is currently in critical condition.”

The boy died after being run over although it has yet to be established if he died at the scene or the hospital. Information remains scarce on the relationship of the two people involved and what sparked the physical altercation. According to Sheriff Chad Chronister, it was a sad turn of events considering it seemed to have stemmed from a meaningless argument.

"A child is dead because of the irresponsible actions of adults who engaged in a verbal dispute and allowed it to escalate. Our detectives are processing the scene, interviewing witnesses, and working to determine who fired the shots. At this time, no arrests have been made and the motive is under investigation. Those who saw or heard something are urged to come forward," Chronister stated.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is seeking information on the incident. Those who may have knowledge about the matter are urged to contact them at 813-247-8200.
