Fund started for victims of double killing

TAMPA — The family of a grandmother and son shot to death this week have established a fund to help with funeral expenses and the medical expenses of a family member injured in the attack.

Donations can be made to the Myrick Family Fund at any Bank of America.

A joint service for Susan Myrick, 35, and her son Laurier Myrick, Jr., 17, is set for 2 p.m. March 22 at Deeper Life Christian Church, 3300 N Nebraska Ave. A wake is scheduled for Friday at Stone Memorial Funeral Home, 5016 N 22nd St., from 4 to 8 p.m. Both are open to the public.

Hillsborough sheriff's officials have not named a suspect or motive in the killings, which happened just after 2 a.m. Tuesday in a second-floor unit at the Camelot Apartment complex at 13135 N 19th St. However, they want to question convicted drug dealer Kito Felton, 31.

According to the Florida Department of Corrections, Felton is 5 feet 8, 160 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair. He has a crucifix tattoo on his left arm and tattoos of a woman, a dollar sign and "Kito" on his right.

Susan Myrick's daughter Jessica Myrick, 18, a mother of two, was shot three times and is in stable condition.
