BREAKING: Shooting Inside Sweepstakes Business Leaves One Dead

UPDATE: 9/16/2018, 1:37 A.M. – 55-year-old Roger Vazquez has been booked into the Hernando County Jail. Vazquez was seen being led away by Deputies immediately after today’s shooting. Officials have not provided information on the suspect’s charges at this time.

SPRING HILL – One person is confirmed dead and another in custody, after a shooting occurred at a sweepstakes business on Northcliffe Blvd.

The incident occurred just after 5:00 p.m. at 10470 Northcliffe Blvd, known as Get Lucky Sweepstakes.

Officials have not released details at this time, but according to sources, an altercation occurred inside the business that led to one person being shot. Dozens of deputies responded to the scene and began evacuating the adjacent businesses. The suspect remained on scene and was taken into custody without incident.

Witnesses inside a barber shop located next door to the business say they heard what sounded like a scuffle, but they did not hear gunfire.

Northcliffe Blvd is closed in both directions at this time.

  • The victim was the nephew of the suspect. Furthermore the suspect and victim represent two of the three people who own the establishment. Some of the comments posted seems to blame the “kinds” of people that go to this places as being the undesirables or the worst of society I believe that to be false. As someone who frequented the place and was acquainted with both the suspect and the victim I think that when facts come out that we will probably learn that this was some type of business dispute that tragically escalated out of control resulting in the death of a young man that had his whole life in front of him, But that is total speculation on my behalf and I was not there at the time of incident. But I do know that three of them had recently opened a sports bar in the same area and they all worked long hours and recently there had been some business friction between them but seemingly nothing that would have led to this. It is really senseless and heartbreaking on many levels and my thoughts and prayers are with all involved and affected by this. But to use this incident to try and stereotype the kind of people who enjoy going to these types of places is irresponsible and wrong. Many if not the majority of their customers are employed and productive members of their community. Of course there are some low life’s that show up up from time to time as there are in most public places. Loitering is not allowed there no alcohol or drugs are permitted in or around the place frankly I have never observed any type of illegal behavior taking place and I go there several times a week. Of the people who share negative opinions of these types of places I wonder how many of them have ever been there? What they would find might surprise them to know just how diverse their customers are, There from every walk of life up and down the social and economic spectrum.

Of the people who share negative opinions of these types of places I wonder how many of them have ever been there? What they would find might surprise them to know just how diverse their customers are, There from every walk of life up and down the social and economic spectrum. There are a couple fundamental questions I think need to be answered. First is there a clear and unambiguous current Florida Statute that would render these establishments illegal? My limited investigation has left me confused as to the legality and further confused about the actions taking by Sheriff Nienhuis. If these places are in fact illegal as some say then why the hell are they still open. The sheriff department raided and closed several of these same types of operations a few months ago leaving the remaining operations open and with larger market share. There should never be selective enforcement of the law. In this country the law should be equally applied. If there is not a Florida Statute defining this type of business then our state legislative branch of government needs to write a law that speaks directly to this issue and get it to the Governor for his signature. I think there are a number of relevant factors that should be considered in the determination which ultimately rest in the power of the people. We elect the people who write the laws. Betting or gambling has been around forever and is not going to ever be stopped. Florida should enact laws to govern these establishments and collect taxes from business owners and winners and use tax revenue on society as a whole. As human beings we have to learn to be able to listen to someone who has a different point of view or who is upset about something without resorting to lethal violence. What happened to the days of good ole fist fights? I participated in many in my younger days usually a black eye or bloody nose was the worst that either party received and it was over,. Life is special and short we should treat it as such. If we could all take a positive away from this sad day it should be from this day forward that we all commit to do our our best to treat everyone like YOU would like to be treated. The world would be a better place,

  • Ambient One real easy for you to type tough on this site. Guess you trying to act all hard too huh?

    Mad Dog 20/20 put down that ghetto juice.

    I miss the days when people had disagreements, they rolled up their fists and worked it out….good times.

    También les diré a todas las boriquas que un voto por el naranja será como escupir en las tumbas de los que perdieron la vida. ¡Levanta tus culos y vota!

  • Welcome to little Puerto Rico.

    Sunday, 16 September 2018, 7:40 am
    • Puerto Rico has been a part of the United States since 1898. So welcome to you.

      Sunday, 16 September 2018, 11:40 am
  • I am appalled at the comments left on here. Please realize that both parties involved have families with feelings. The lost of a life is the hardest thing as humans that we must deal with. Please be mindful that this could be you or I no matter what the circumstances. Why don’t you try sending some prayers up for everyone involved and keeping in mind that the days, months, and years ahead will be very hard for them. I personally know the people involved, and I m praying for them. For a parent to lose a child is unbearable and please please if you don’t have anything positive to say, please know that your negative thoughts or feelings aren’t helping either. Keep the foolishness to yourself and pray you never have any rain in your life.

    • Couldn’t have said it better ….. wish more people could have this mind set , whether they know the family or not. ❤️

  • He is Cuban, Not Mexican or a New Yorker. Up until today I thought of him as a friend. He was a very caring person to all of his customers.. Please dont speculate until you have the facts. This seem to be a pretty racist thread. Just sayin, I was born in NY guess our Comander in Chief has got everyone brainwashed.

    Saturday, 15 September 2018, 11:22 pm
    • No, our Commander In Chief is straightening our country out after the worst eight years of worthless leadership we have ever known.

      • Would you be saying that if the last president was white? What exactly did President Obama do that ruined this country? Start a decade long war with Iraq because his pops told him to blame them for 9/11?

        Sunday, 16 September 2018, 2:38 pm
    • Christine are you racist against Pres.Trumpand what has he got to do with this “nutjob” shooting and killing someone?

      Sunday, 16 September 2018, 6:20 am
      • Yes I am against Trump, but I am not racist. I am an American watching our country become a joke. You are a male so you wouldnt understand the reference. The boy Roger killed was his own family member. Why? I do not know.

        Sunday, 16 September 2018, 11:35 am
        • Christine = what’s the matter PRESENT TRUMP TAKE YOUR OBUMMER PHONE AWAY?? A man is dead, killed by family member, just how does that have anything to do with politics.? Stupid comment by you.

          Sunday, 16 September 2018, 2:40 pm
          • You really need to educate yourself. Obama did NOT come up with the government phone.
            Do some research!

            Sunday, 16 September 2018, 3:08 pm
    • WHAT THE HELL HAS TRUMP GOT TO DO WITH THIS. YOU JUST THREW ANY CREDIBILITY YOU MAY HAVE HAD RIGHT OUT THE WINDOW.

      Sunday, 16 September 2018, 9:24 am
      • Im assuming a male as well? Hiding behind an alias? If not, refer to comment I left on Bethy. I don’t seek credibility from you or anyone else. I know someone who was present at the time.

        Sunday, 16 September 2018, 11:38 am
    • Why must every story get a political remark or involve the president it’s so played out move on humans have always killed one another from the beginning of time They are the most violent creatures on the planet

      Sunday, 16 September 2018, 1:46 pm
  • Maybe a gang related shooting?

    Saturday, 15 September 2018, 10:45 pm
    • The suspect’s name is Robert Eugene Shade, short little dude, only 5’6″.
      Tons of gang tattoos.

      Saturday, 15 September 2018, 10:51 pm
      • That’s not his name dumbass they were related and he doesn’t have any gang tattoos, they’re both my uncles

        Sunday, 16 September 2018, 1:03 am
      • Hey, I’m 5’6 with tattoos and spend a fair amount of time there. What’s that got to do with anything.

        Sunday, 16 September 2018, 6:22 am
      • So you just start throwing names out there so you feel like you know something others don’t? No research or nothing just first person on sheriff page that look like guy being arrested?

        Sunday, 16 September 2018, 6:48 am
      • I stand corrected, with exception to the tattoos, and I apologize..

  • A love triangle gone bad,,,,,,Or…..Drug deal gone bad,,,,,Or……lost all his money gambling?

    Saturday, 15 September 2018, 8:48 pm
  • these establishments are just drug and money laundering establishments. Ya they are nice for the elderly to go place some games but for the most part they are owned by people who are scum. Why they get approved to open up is beyond me! Get on the ball HCSO and close these down! You arrest someone for some weed but let these places run wild.

    Saturday, 15 September 2018, 7:56 pm
    • Maybe you should know what your talking about before you go running your mouth

      Saturday, 15 September 2018, 10:02 pm
    • The place I’m at is none of the above. We are probably the only place in town that doesn’t have anything shady going on. There’s no drugs, no money laundering. We have entertainment for the older community and quite frankly the younger community needs something in this town to do and they like the fish games. Better than running wild around town committing crimes and doing drugs. I’d appreciate it if we are allowed to stay open as we are only a place for people to come have some fun and win prizes and enjoy some other company.

      Sunday, 16 September 2018, 9:45 am
  • Is there still someone at large? Or were the ones involved arrested?

    Saturday, 15 September 2018, 7:37 pm
  • I’m sure he was just standing his ground.

    Saturday, 15 September 2018, 7:06 pm
    • How do you know that he wasn’t?

      Sunday, 16 September 2018, 8:00 am
  • I thought those businesses were illegal. Shut them down.

    Saturday, 15 September 2018, 7:03 pm
  • He looks like a New Yorker POS.

    Saturday, 15 September 2018, 6:32 pm
    • And you are a jerkoff

      Saturday, 15 September 2018, 8:59 pm
    • I’m sorry…. can you please describe what a “New Yorker” looks like? What in God’s name does ones looks have to do with what he did? Point is it’s uneducated comments like this one are why we have so much negativity in the world. And where do you come from? Smh…

      Saturday, 15 September 2018, 9:01 pm
    • I bet 20 that he is

      Saturday, 15 September 2018, 9:02 pm
      • Pay up stupid..another local..

        Sunday, 16 September 2018, 1:07 am
    • Mad Dog I don’t believe being a NY’er has anything to do with it. You have plenty of SH people pure breed that have their share of
