The Tampa Police Department responded to a shooting that happened in the Adventure Islands' theme park parking lot Sunday.

According to the police, the Korb's were wet when their Uber arrived.

A shot was sacked during a struggle between an Uber driver and potential passengers Sunday (June 25) in the Adventure Island parking lot, Tampa police said.

According to police two brothers wanted to get into the Uber auto but the driver said he didn't want to take the fare since they were so wet.

So far no charges have been filed.

Leon told police he was scared for his life, so he reached for his gun, but when they tried to grab it from him and it went off. In the struggle, a shot was sacked, but there were no reported injuries.
