Clearwater police search for suspects in Coachman Creek Apartments shooting

CLEARWATER — An ex-convict who spent 12 years in prison and a suspected bank-robbery getaway driver were being sought for questioning Thursday after police said they robbed and shot a man early Thursday morning.

Timothy Lamar Miller, 39, and Emily A. Burgos, 25, were in a white 1997 Toyota Camry outside the Coachman Creek Apartments when they shot another man in the vehicle, police said.

The victim made his way from the complex at 2625 State Road 590 toward a nearby Mobil gas station. A bystander there saw him bleeding about 7 a.m.

The victim, who police have not named, was treated for a flesh wound at the hospital and released Thursday morning.

Miller and Burgos are wanted by the police for armed robbery; Miller is also wanted for aggravated battery with a firearm. Both are considered armed and dangerous.

The Camry, which is owned by a relative of Burgos, was taken into evidence, police said. Detectives did not believe the shooting was a random act.

Miller has spent nearly 12 years in state prison and been convicted of aggravated assault, firing a weapon into a vehicle or building, assault on an officer, cocaine possession and grand theft firearm. He was last released from the Century state prison in the Panhandle in July.

Burgos was convicted of two counts of battery in 2006. In August, she was accused of driving her boyfriend, 40-year-old Robert J. Marquez, away from a Bank of America he had just robbed of $1,400, then helping him clean the dye-stained money at a Largo laundromat.

Police ask that anyone with information call the Clearwater Police Department at (727) 562-4242 or text "CWPD" and any tips or information to 847411.
