Details murky in shooting of Largo man


Details murky in shooting of Largo man

A Largo man was shot late Tuesday at Woodlawn Street and S Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue. The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office got a 911 call about 11 p.m. regarding a man with a gunshot wound at 2132 Coral Way in Largo. Deputies found Larry Joe Jerry, 26, shot in the right shoulder. Jerry either drove or was driven to his Coral Way home after the shooting, said Joelle Castelli, Clearwater police spokeswoman. Rescuers took Jerry to Bayfront Medical Center, she said. The gunshot wound was not considered life-threatening, she said. The circumstances of the shooting remained unclear Wednesday morning. Jerry told authorities someone named Kenny shot him. Police searched the area but did not find anyone who met his description.


Pedestrian killed crossing Ulmerton

A 22-year-old pedestrian died early Wednesday after being struck by a vehicle near the intersection of Ulmerton Road and 34th Way N, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. At 1:34 a.m. Wednesday, Jesse-James Redmond was trying to cross Ulmerton Road from south to north when he was struck on his right side by a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee traveling west. Redmond was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the vehicle was Jackie Randall, 28, of Pinellas Park. Largo resident Ricky Garland, 41, was a passenger in the vehicle. Both individuals were wearing seat belts, and neither sustained injuries. All lanes of Ulmerton Road were reopened by 5 a.m. FHP officials are still trying to determine whether alcohol had anything to do with the incident.

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — We know what the Rays look like this year: a team that had enough talent but too many flaws, in construction and performance, and in the next few days will be officially eliminated from a wild-card race it had a chance to win but let slip away.
