Tampa man found killed in apartment complex

TAMPA — 32-year-old man was found dead Friday morning in the parking lot of an apartment complex near Mango, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said.

Several people called 911 about 11:40 a.m. to report the dead man at the Claymore Crossing Apartments, 5005 Claymore Drive.

Sheriff's officials identified him as Marcus Levon Williams of Tampa. He had upper body trauma and detectives do not believe the crime was random, sheriff's Col. Donna Lusczynski said. There were no suspects as of Friday afternoon.

Investigators were reviewing surveillance camera footage from the area, Lusczynski said.

Jail records show that Williams had been arrested several times on felony drug possession and trafficking charges
