TPD: Man in video did not witness Plant shooting

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

The man seen in a video released by Tampa police did not, in fact, witness last week's shooting near Plant High School, TPD now says.

Investigators released several seconds of surveillance video on Wednesday that showed a man in a red shirt.  They described him as a possible witness to the Friday night shooting of a 16-year-old girl.

The teen is still recovering from a gunshot wound to the leg.

Police say the man saw the video, came forward, and spoke with detectives.

"Unfortunately, he did not witness the crime and was unable to provide any investigative leads.  For clarification purposes, he is not a suspect in the case," a TPD statement explained.

The investigation continues.
