ODESSA (PASCO) – Earlier this evening, RNRF reported what officials have now confirmed is a gang related, execution style murder, on the Suncoast Parkway.
According to Sheriff Chris Nocco, around 4:55 p.m. a witness called 911 to report that a pickup truck was stopped on the northbound exit ramp, preparing to turn westbound on SR-54. The witness noticed two men on motorcycles approached the truck and fire three shots. The victim was seen slumped over the wheel and was later confirmed deceased.
Nocco says the identity of the victim Is not being released, pending notice of next of kin, however, he did say that the victim is a documented motorcycle gang member.
It’s unclear if they are rival gang members or associated with the same gang. “It wasn’t a random act,” says Nocco.
Those involved wore “Cracker Boltz,” which are the Nazi SS symbol, according to Nocco.
“This is something you only see in the movies or on TV and it was playing right in front of their eyes,” Nocco explained.
Anyone who can identify the suspect(s) should call the Pasco Sheriff’s Office Crime Tips Line at 1-800-706-2488.
