A pair of would-be liquor store robbers in Tampa Bay attempted to target the wrong man.
One of two men attempting to rob a Tampa liquor store was shot to death in an exchange of gunfire with the clerk late Sunday, police said.
Cody Bolesta, 20, was found fatally shot on the sidewalk near Cut Rate Liquors, at 3312 N. 15th St., in the V.M. Ybor neighborhood, police said.
Detectives are working to track down the other suspect, who fled the scene.
The store employee, a 57-year-old man, was not injured.
The case will be turned over to prosecutors once the investigation is complete, but no charges are expected against the clerk.
It is not known if the revolver Bolesta brandished in numerous photos on his Facebook page was the weapon used to open fire on the clerk.
