Tampa police arrest Tavares man wanted in murder

TAMPA — Tampa police have arrested a man wanted in a July homicide in Tavares.

Police say that in July, Richard R. Jennings shot three people and one of them died. He was charged with homicide, but eluded authorities.

Tampa police's Fugitive Task Force got information that Jennings, 20, was in Tampa, and they watched a relative's house in New Tampa, near Tampa Palms Boulevard and S Compton Drive.

When police saw Jennings get into a car, they blocked the car and arrested him.

He was booked into jail Monday afternoon on a charge of first-degree murder and was being held Tuesday without bail.
