A second Tampa police officer has died following a shooting during a traffic stop.

Officials say 31-year-old officer David Curtis died at Tampa General Hospital. Officer Jeffrey Kocab, also 31, died earlier following the shooting early Tuesday.

A massive search is on for a man and woman who were driving a red Toyota Camry.

Police say Curtis pulled over the Camry because it didn't have a visible tag. He called for backup because the male suspect had a misdemeanor warrant.

A few minutes later, police received a 911 call that the officers had been shot. Authorities found the officers lying on the ground. The male suspect is believed to be the shooter.

Kocab's wife is nine-months pregnant. Curtis was a father of four.
