    Saddoni Levirrick Dowtin

    Last Known Address:  120 NW 59 Street, Miami


    A man wanted on a second-degree murder charge in Miami was captured by the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office after a brief SWAT stand off on Friday morning.  Around 9:30 p.m., Thursday, the Sheriff's Office received a call from the Miami-Dade Police Department that a wanted murder suspect, Saddoni Levirrick Dowtin, 31, could be hiding in Hillsborough County.

    Dowtin is connected to a homicide in Miami on July 13. An investigation quickly led deputies to a home located at 9305 Grandfield Road in Thonotosassa around 1:30 a.m. Friday.

    Deputies attempted to make contact with Dowtin inside the home, but were unsuccessful. Believing Dowtin was inside, and possibly armed, the SWAT team was called to the scene at 7:11 a.m. to set up a perimeter around the property. Surrounding homes were evacuated. A nearby school bus stop on Walker Road was rerouted outside of the secure perimeter.

    At 8:23 a.m., realizing the home was surrounded, Dowtin surrendered to the SWAT team without incident.

    He was transported to Orient Road Jail to be booked.
