What: Homicide Investigation
Date: November 15, 2019
Location: Walmart Neighborhood Market

At around 11:00am officers responded to the report of a person shot at the listed location. Upon arrival officers discovered an adult male subject on the ground suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Officers and emergency medical personnel started life saving efforts on the victim. The victim was transported to Bayfront Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. The investigation is still ongoing and here is what we know at this point. The victim was on his break from his employment at the store and was standing or sitting behind the business when a white sedan drove to where the man was. Two black male subjects exited the car and shot the man multiple times prior to fleeing in the same vehicle. At this time we are working off the premise that this was a deliberate and targeted attack on the victim. Detectives are on scene investigating. We are asking for anyone that may have been in the area this morning that saw or heard something to let us know. They may call the police department at 727-369-7804 or Pinellas County Crime Stoppers 1-800-873-8477. I am still on the scene and will release more information as it becomes available.
