One victim identified in Clearwater double shooting

CLEARWATER — Police on Monday released the name of one of the people injured in a double shooting early Saturday morning.

Colbert Collins, 58, of 1730 Fulton Ave., remained in the hospital on Monday in critical but stable condition, according to Clearwater police.

The name of the other person shot during the incident, a man in his 40s, has not yet been released because authorities have not been able to locate his relatives, said Clearwater police spokeswoman Elizabeth Watts. He was in critical condition Monday, Watts said.

The shooting took place in Marshall Park near the 400 block of Beckett Street around 4:45 a.m. Saturday. Police said they were quickly able to identify one suspect, who was arrested later that day after officers found him hiding in the bed of a pick-up truck during a traffic stop.

Carlos B. Jones, 24, was being held without bail Monday in the Pinellas County Jail on two counts of attempted murder. Police, who have not released a motive in the shooting, said they are looking for a second suspect.
