On April 12, 2010, at approximately 5:45 a.m. a deputy was dispatched to an intrusion alarm located at Morgan Woods Elementary School on Armand Drive just south of Soccer Drive. After checking the school and finding the alarm was false the deputy then drove down Soccer Drive to check the area of Town and Country Shimberg Soccer Fields when he discovered the victim lying in the middle of Soccer Drive east of Armand Drive.
It is clear from the investigation at this point that the victim appeared to have been shot at the location by unknown assailant(s) with an unknown type firearm sustaining multiple gun shots to the upper torso and died at the scene. Investigators have also determined that several area residents reported what sounded like gun shots in the area around 2:30 a.m. but did not see anything. Investigators have also determined that the victim was a known associate of the Latin Kings Gang, however a motive on why the victim was slain is not known at this time.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the assistance of the community and asking that anyone with any information on this crime to call the Sheriff’s Office at 247-8200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-8477.
