‘No regard for human life’: 3rd suspect arrested in Ybor shooting, Tampa police say

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Tampa police have arrested a third suspect involved in the Ybor shooting that occurred on Oct. 29.

Chief Lee Bercaw announced that 21-year-old Dwayne Tillman Jr. was arrested Thursday, just 24 hours after the arrest of a 14-year-old, Kayden Abney.

Tillman Jr. is being charged with attempted second-degree murder and aggravated battery with great bodily harm. These both serve a minimum of 20 years in prison.

The police department said this suspect was caught on video shooting into a crowd. They referred to the suspect as “reckless.”

On Dec. 6, Tampa Police announced Abney’s arrest, who was charged as an adult for the death of 20-year-old Harrison Boonstoppel.

Police believe there is one more shooter in connection to this incident.

“My thoughts remain with the victims and their families,” Chief Bercaw said. “It should be clear to anyone at this point that if you participate in criminal activity, you will be arrested, you will be prosecuted, and justice will be found for those who suffered from your actions. This additional arrest is another demonstration of our commitment to holding criminals accountable and I can only hope it provides a small sense of closure for the families of all those who have been impacted.”

“He had no regard for human life and will pay for his actions,” State Attorney Suzy Lopez added.

Among the two killed, 16 others were injured when at least one gunman opened fire along 7th Avenue, the main drag of the entertainment district.

TPD increased the reward to $27,000 for additional tips that will lead to the arrests of the remaining suspects.

The mass shooting remains an ongoing investigation.
