Man killed two days after release from Pasco jail

DADE CITY — On Sunday afternoon, Armando Uribe Jr. was released from the Pasco County jail. He was killed less than two days later.

Uribe, 39, was gunned down on a Dade City street about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

No suspects have been arrested, said Kevin Doll, spokesman for the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. Deputies were called to the 14000 block of Dade Street when neighbors heard gunshots.

Uribe, who lived at 32623 St. Joe Road, was released from the Pasco County jail on Sunday after being arrested Feb. 26 on a charge of driving with a suspended or revoked license.

He was arrested in May on a charge of possession of methamphetamines and again in August on a domestic violence charge, according to Sheriff's Office records.

Uribe's family said he was trying to get his life together.

"My brother, he is a good man," Monica Uribe told Bay News 9. "He's got family. He's got four boys. He's got a wife."

She said she wants her brother's killer to be found.

"Nobody should be left in the middle of the road to die like that," she said. "My brother didn't deserve that."

Doll urged anyone with information to call Detective Charles Troy toll-free at 1-800-854-2862, ext. 7209.
