Suspect in Ybor City killing surrenders

TAMPA — An 18-year-old wanted for murder in a shooting last week outside an Ybor City nightclub turned himself in Tuesday afternoon, police said.

Tampa police had issued a second-degree murder arrest warrant for Bryan Jefferson of Temple Terrace, who they say shot at Ricky Ligons, 24, and another person as a group of people got into a fight early Friday in a parking lot at 1704 N 17th St. outside of Club Ice.

Ligons was found face-down on the pavement by police about 2:30 a.m. He was taken to Tampa General Hospital, where he died.

Police announced Tuesday that they were looking to arrest Jefferson. He surrendered shortly afterward, police said.

In addition to the murder charge, he faces a felony charge of attempted second-degree murder with a firearm. He was being held without bail Tuesday night at Hillsborough County jail.

Times researcher John Martin contributed to this report.
