    I'm oddly glad to see that the PCSO handled this so well. This guy is no longer on the streets, so I dont have the chance of running into him.

    Deputy shoots suspect of Clearwater triple shooting - Bay News 9

    PINELLAS COUNTY (Bay News 9) -- The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office says a deputy shot and killed the suspect of a triple shooting that happened early Saturday morning.

    Officials say the deputy shot 19-year-old Alexander Blaine Epstein at 665 Poinsettia Ave. in Clearwater Beach.

    Investigators say Epstein was responsible for a late-night party shooting that left two people dead and a third critically injured.

    According to officials, deputies received tips leading them to the residence on Poinsettia Avenue. They staked out the residence at around 11 a.m.

    At about 4:20 p.m., Epstein reportedly left the house and walked toward a deputy. Investigators say Epstein attempted to pull out a weapon.

    When the deputy challenged him, Epstein did not surrender, so the deputy fired a shot.

    Epstein then reportedly staggered back toward the residence with his weapon still out. When another deputy challenged him, the suspect still did not put down his weapon, so the deputy shot him, this time killing him.

    Deputies say Epstein had an extensive criminal record including child abuse, robbery, theft and carrying a concealed weapon.

    Right before the deputy shot the suspect, a resident of the area, Ben Hessel, said he saw a tan SUV drive across his front lawn. Then he heard six shots fired, and when he looked out his window, he saw a body lying in a parking lot nearby.

    The triple shooting happened Saturday around 2:20 a.m. in the 2200 block of Curtis Drive in Clearwater.

    According to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, two male suspects, including Epstein, arrived at the home looking for someone who was not at the location.

    An altercation allegedly began between the suspects and another person at the party.

    Detectives say shooting followed the argument, with three people being hit by gunfire.

    According to reports, 20-year-old Benjamin Andrew Kubes of Clearwater was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Ibrahim Sorie Kamara, 22, and Dennis Alphonse Miyawa, 20, were transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

    Investigators say Kamara was pronounced dead at the hospital.

    The initial altercation was over a woman, officials say

    Too bad others had to die, Epstein would have been enough.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    How many victims before we finally have a dead offender? If he was convicted of child abuse, how come he never saw the light of day?
