Authorities ID man shot to death at east Tampa apartment complex

TAMPA — A 23-year-old man who was recently released from state prison was shot to death Monday night at an east Tampa apartment complex.

Akime Casey was found dead about 9:20 p.m. near a palm tree in the courtyard of the complex at 7802 River Resort Lane. Hillsborough sheriff's deputies responded to the complex after receiving several reports of gunshots in the area.

Casey was on probation, released from state prison June 1 after serving about 18 months of a two-year sentence for robbery and cocaine convictions.

Deputies searched all night for a suspect, but no arrests had been made as of Tuesday.
