Tampa Police Searching for Suspects in Shooting that Killed One and Injured Two Others


Date/Time: 2/19/13 at 9:00pm

Location: 2906 East 22nd Avenue

Victim: Dexter Jermane Gardner, DOB: 5/13/86, B/M, 2714 North Ridgewood Ave. Tampa (Deceased)

Victim: Thomas Causei, DOB: 11/17/71, B/M, 2906 East 22nd Ave. Apt A Tampa, (Serious, but Stable Condition)

Victim: Bertran Sampson, DOB: 9/30/86, B/M, 4111 Royal Banyan Dr. Apt 205, Tampa (Minor Injury)

The three victims were hanging out in front of one of the victim's homes when a group of suspects walked up and fired at them. The suspects fled on foot to a car parked nearby. When officers arrived, they found one victim deceased and another who was seriously injured. A short time later, officers learned a third victim was also shot at the scene, but he had fled to his home that was nearby. Detectives do not believe this is a random act of violence. They are still working to compile the suspects' descriptions. Anyone with information about the shooting is urged to call the Tampa Police Department at 813 231-6130.
