At 2:20 AM this morning, Tampa Police Officers responded to a call of "shots fired" at Club Dreams, located at 4217 E. 7th Ave. As officers arrived on scene, they were informed that two vehicles had fled from the parking lot at a high rate of speed prior to their arrival.

Moments later, officers were informed that the driver of a black Jeep Cherokee was shooting at the driver of a red Infiniti, in the area of N. 40th St & E. Chelsea Ave. The driver of the red Infiniti took a defensive measure and he intentionally rammed the Jeep Cherokee with his Infiniti.

The Jeep overturned and crashed into a building at 3802 N. 40th Street. The driver of the Jeep jumped out of the vehicle and fled on foot. The driver of the Infiniti was not injured and he found a bullet hole in the driver's door of his vehicle.

At this time, officers are trying to determine what transpired.
