Hillsborough sheriff's investigators want to talk to Bernard Dwayne Wilson about the Monday shooting death of a 54-year-old woman. Wilson, 24, is wanted on a warrant for grand theft auto after borrowing a car from an acquaintance and not returning it, sheriff's spokeswoman Debbie Carter said. Olivia Roane died on Monday around 7:45 p.m. after an intruder knocked in her apartment door at 6806 N 50th St. and began shooting. Anyone with information is asked to call the Hillsborough Sheriff's Office at 247-8200 or Crime Stoppers at (800) 873-8477.
Five-vehicle crash started with truck
A five-car accident closed the southbound lanes of Interstate 75 near Bruce B. Downs Boulevard for about two hours Wednesday morning, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The crash happened about 8:45 a.m., when a semitrailer truck driven by Ronnie Thomas, 27, of Havana failed to slow for other traffic, drove into the median and jackknifed, hitting a 2003 Toyota Tundra driven by John Roth, 59, of San Antonio, troopers say. The impact pushed the Toyota into a 1995 Ford F-150 driven by Richard Zytczak, 45, of Tampa. The semi then turned clockwise, hitting a 1997 Toyota Corolla driven by Brian Somwaru, 25, of Wesley Chapel, who was pushed into a 1995 Dodge Durango driven by Debbie Harrison, 48, of Zephyrhills. No one was injured. Thomas was cited for careless driving.
2nd man arrested in teen's shooting
Police have arrested a second man on an attempted murder charge in connection with the abduction and shooting last month of a 16-year-old. Jordan Thronce Green, 19, of Clearwater was at a hospital Wednesday and had not yet been booked into the Pinellas County Jail. Authorities say that on Sept. 5, Green, Darrius M. Kilpatrick and a third man forced Steven Stencel, 16, into a pickup in Pinellas Park. They drove him to Clearwater, where Stencel was shot five times. Authorities said the kidnapping and shooting appeared to be drug-related.
