Tampa Police Investigating Double Homicide

05/20/17


A homicide suspect is in custody after leading Tampa Police officers to two deceased males.  The investigation started at approximately 5:28 p.m. on May 19 when officers responded to a call regarding a suspicious male who was possibly armed at the Green Planet Smoke Shop.  The officers made contact with the suspect who was armed at the time.  The suspect was taken into custody without incident.  

While in custody, the suspect made comments to the officers that he killed two people.  The suspect directed the officers to a home inside The Hamptons Condominium, located at 15350 Amberly Drive.  Officers entered the residence and located two deceased males. 

There is still police activity at the scene of this very active investigation. Officers are currently processing the scene and interviewing witnesses.  The suspect is also being interviewed.  

This appears to be an isolated incident and not a random act of violence.

The names of the suspect and victims will be released when that information becomes available to the public, along with any additional details surrounding this case.
