    Who:
     

    Louis Kuilan-Maysonet (DOB 3-10-84)

    Alejandro Salavarrieta (DOB 6/3/90)
    Andre Jennings (DOB 7-30-87)

    What:
     

    As the bar closed at 3 a.m. Saturday morning December 22nd, a verbal fight
    over a woman's lost purse erupted inside the Boomerang Martini Bar. The purse
    belonged to the girlfriend of Louis Kuilan-Maysonet (DOB 3-10-84). The fight
    spilled into the parking lot, where Kuilan-Maysonet started arguing with
    Christopher Gonzalez-Cartagena (DOB 10-23-83), although it is unclear if the
    two men were feuding over the missing purse. At that point, Kuilan-Maysonet
    lifted his shirt and flashed a handgun in his waistband while
    Gonzalez-Cartagena attempted to walk to his car. As he neared his car,
    investigators say Kuilan-Maysonet started shooting at him. Gonzalez-Cartagena
    suffered several gunshot wounds, including a graze to the head. During the
    shooting, a security guard for Boomerang's, Andre Jennings (DOB 7-30-87) was
    directing traffic. When Jennings heard gunshots, he turned and witnessed the
    shooting. Jennings ordered Kuilan-Maysonet to stop shooting, but
    Kuilan-Maysonet spun towards Jennings with the gun in his hands. Jennings then
    fired his own gun several times, shooting Kuilan-Maysonet. During the scuffle,
    a bar patron, Alejandro Salavarrieta (DOB 6/3/90) having nothing to do with
    the confrontation, was shot in the leg. At this stage in the investigation,
    it's unclear who shot him. Kuilan-Maysonet was taken to Brandon Regional
    Hospital, where he died. The other two victims were taken to Tampa General
    Hospital for treatment. Andre Jennings, the security guard at Boomerang's, is
    fully licensed with a valid concealed weapons permit. For now, the case
    continues to be investigated and the State Attorney's Office will review
    whether any charges will be filed.
