Security guard shot and killed outside club
WTSP 12:23 p.m. EDT July 21, 2014
Tampa, Florida -- Tampa Police detectives are asking for the community's help identifying the person who shot and killed an armed security guard at a local night club.
Police say the shooting occurred just before 3 a.m. Sunday morning at Supa D's on E. Skagway Avenue. When officers arrived, they found Kenyatha Walker, 35, lying down outside the club with gunshot wounds. He was taken to a local hospital where he later died from his injuries.
Detectives say the shooting took place when the club was about to close for the night and they believe there was a large crowd of patrons exiting the club who may have seen the shooter.
Detectives are urging those witnesses to come forward with any information they may have that could identify the suspect. Anyone with information about this murder is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS(8477) or text "CSTB plus your tip" to 274637 (CRIMES). Anonymous tips leading to an arrest may be eligible for a reward of up to $3,000 in cash.
Security guard accused of killing colleague in Mount Vernon

Officers found the man mortally wounded at 3:45 a.m.
MOUNT VERNON – A 32-year-old security company worker was accused Monday of fatally shooting a guard he supervised at Levister Towers after the victim made comments about his boss's size and weight, police said.
Dontan Jenkins of Mount Vernon shot his 47-year-old colleague multiple times as the victim was stationed inside a glass-enclosed booth, Police Commissioner Terrance Raynor said.
Police responded to the lobby of the low-income housing complex at 241 S. Ninth Ave. around 3:45 a.m. Monday in response to reports of "multiple gunshots" fired and found a security guard mortally wounded, Raynor said.
Jenkins and the unarmed victim, a Bronx man whose name was not released pending notification of his family, had an argument during a shift they worked together Sunday, Raynor said. Jenkins returned as the victim was working a double shift, approached his booth and shot him, he said.
Jenkins, who has a criminal record, was arrested after being interviewed at police headquarters, where he admitted to the shooting, the commissioner said. He was charged with second-degree murder and is to be arraigned Tuesday. A weapons-possession charge is also expected to be added.
The suspect has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor in a drug case and also had an assault charge reduced.
Mayor Ernest Davis earlier called the shooting "an isolated incident."
"It's personal, it's one of those things that can happen anywhere," Davis said.
