Four people were wounded in a shooting that started when the occupants of a limousine were apparently targeted for a robbery, St. Petersburg police said.

Two of the nine limo passengers were shot by someone in a stolen Chrysler 300 who pulled up next to the limo at Queensboro Avenue South and 31st Street, police said.

The limo driver, a registered gun owner, told investigators he shot back in self-defense as the Chrysler fled. The limo driver was attempting to call 911 about 2 a.m., when he came upon police investigating an unrelated shooting and stolen vehicle.

An acquaintance of the limo party following behind in a black Nissan Altima was also wounded, but the Altima left the scene before police arrived, investigators said. The man later went to All Children’s Hospital.

The Chrysler 300, which had been reported as stolen March 13, was found about a mile away. Anzio Fabian Dale, 17, was inside with a life-threatening gunshot wound, police said. He was hospitalized in critical condition.

Charges against Dale are pending, police said.

These are details of the preliminary police investigation:

About 9 p.m. Tuesday, the driver of the leased 2013 black Lincoln Continental custom limousine picked up eight passengers from an address near Sixth Avenue South and 29th Street. The party was taken to the Scene nightclub downtown.
