The Tampa Police Department (TPD) and Pasco County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) are seeking the public’s help in identifying and locating a man believed to have information about a recent homicide in the New Tampa area.
According to a news release from TPD, around 3:30 on May 31, following an altercation in the parking lot of the McDonald’s in the New Tampa Center shopping plaza, the victim, 20-year-old Reggie Reshawn Adams, was chased by the suspect or suspects about 2.5 miles south along Bruce B. Downs (BBD) Blvd., where he was shot in his black Dodge Magnum near I-75.
Adams’ friends drove him to Pasco Regional Hospital in Dade City and dropped him off at 5:11 p.m., where he died a short time later, the release states. Adams, a Texas resident, was in town visiting family.
McDonald’s surveillance cameras caught video of a man waiting in line, who authorities have deemed a “person of interest.” Authorities believe that the man caught on video inside the McDonald’s has information about the case.
Anyone with any information about the case, especially the man in the photo’s identity or whereabouts, is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 873-TIPS. You also can text a tip to CSTB at 274637. Tips can produce up to a $1,000 reward if they prove to be useful.
