One dead in early morning St. Petersburg shooting

ST. PETERSBURG — Police released surveillance video Friday of a man and woman they say were involved in an early morning shooting death at a BP Station.

The video shows Caleb K. Scott, 21, exchanging words with his killer in the doorway of the BP Station at 2753 5th Ave. S just after midnight.

Police said the man shot Scott in the chest, causing him to fall back into the convenience store.

Scott was taken to Bayfront Medical Center and later died.

Police said they aren't sure if Scott and the shooter knew each other. They're still looking for the shooter, as well as witnesses who left the store before detectives could question them.

Anyone who can identify the shooter, the woman who appears to be accompanying him or other people in the video (besides the store clerk and the customer shown in a green shirt) is asked to call Detective Kenny Miller at (727) 214-4536.

Tipsters also can call (727) 893-7780, text a tip to (727) 420-8911 or leave a confidential tip at (727) 892-5000.

Caleb K. Scott, 21, exchanged words with his killer in the doorway of the BP Station at 2753 5th Ave. S just after midnight Thursday. Police need help in identifying the shooter.
