Tampa Man Charged with Stabbing Death of Father


A Tampa man was arrested early this morning after authorities allege that he stabbed his father to death.

Da'Mon Timothy Rashaad Larry was booked into the Hillsborough County Jail at half past four this morning and is being held without bond on a charge of second-degree murder with a weapon. Tampa police say that the 23-year-old man attacked his father, Damon Larry Sr., and the two became involved in what witnesses described as a fistfight. They said that 43-year-old Larry Sr. attempted to disengage from the fight, but Da'Mon followed him to the ground and continued attacking.

Police say that when they arrived at the Ybor City home just before nine o'clock last night they discovered Larry Sr. suffering from several stab wounds. The wounds proved to be mortal once he reached a nearby hospital.

According to witnesses, the alleged attack occurred at the home of Larry Sr.'s mother-in-law. Da'Mon was said to have been living there at the time of the alleged incident. Da'Mon and Larry Sr. were said to have had a difficult relationship - Da'Mon had been arrested in 2014 for domestic battery that witnesses say involved Larry Sr. as well. Da'Mon's family say that he had a history of behavioral problems in general, causing him to be expelled from a local community college.

Larry Sr. was working as a welder at the Port of Tampa and pursuing a barber's license at the time of his passing. He is survived by his wife and eight children.
