Police: Tampa man wounded in shooting

A Tampa man was shot Tuesday night and taken to a local hospital, Tampa police said.

Just after 8 p.m., Tampa police responded to 2015 E. Eskimo Drive after receiving a 911 call about a man who had been shot, police said.

When police officers arrived, they found 32-year-old Benjamin Lee Rainey had been shot. Tampa Fire Rescue transported him to a local hospital, and police say his injuries appear to be non-life threatening.

Detectives have yet to determine a motive, but upon searching the home, found large quantities of marijuana.
