Tampa man shot dead outside mobile home after ongoing dispute

TAMPA — A 21-year-old was shot to death early Tuesday at a mobile home park in what police are calling a bloody end to a running argument.

At almost 3 a.m., Yoandy Cancio of 9614 N Central Ave., Unit 28, was shot at least once in the chest by a man who ran away, said Tampa police spokeswoman Laura McElroy.

Now police have issued a warrant for Alexis Rivera Nunez, 29, of 9614 N Central Ave., No. 6, on a second-degree murder charge.

Authorities say Cancio and Nunez were involved in a dispute for at least a few weeks, though it's unclear what the fight was about.

Cancio was a few doors down from the home he shared with his sister, talking to his cousin outside his cousin's mobile home, when Nunez walked up, police say. The two began arguing. Both had guns. Witnesses saw the suspect run away after the shooting.

Cancio was dead when police arrived at 2:49 a.m.

Central Mobile Home Park North is in the shadow of Interstate 275 near Linebaugh Avenue. The park is made up of little white trailers and campers, many with peeling paint and rickety walls. It was blocked off Tuesday with yellow crime scene tape.

Cancio's mother lives in the park, too. McElroy said she was treated by Tampa Fire Rescue for heart trouble after hearing the news.

Police found a gun at the scene they think belonged to Cancio.

Cancio was arrested twice in Hillsborough County, in 2006 and 2007, on warrants for battery, opposing an officer without violence, possession of marijuana and violating probation.

Nunez is believed to be driving a 2004 four-door black Cadillac with dark tinted windows and 22-inch rims, and tag number Q014XC.

Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to call Tampa police at (813) 231-6130 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-873-8477.
