St. Pete Man Charged In 2017 Slaying

pistol-946398_640.jpgA St. Petersburg man was arrested last week on suspicion of committing a murder almost three years ago.

Pinellas County authorities say the man became embroiled in an argument with another individual on an early July morning in 2017 outside a St. Petersburg restaurant. Investigators say the argument became violent, and the defendant allegedly produced a firearm.

As the sound of fireworks was still prevalent in the area, investigators say neighbors likely mistook the rounds the defendant allegedly fired off at the victim for harmless firecrackers. Nevertheless, investigators say the trio of rounds aimed at the victim found their mark, felling the victim on the spot.

First responders began treatment of the 42-year-old man, but their efforts were ultimately in vain. The victim perished on the way to hospital, and the homicide investigation began.
