Man Killed in Possible Motorcycle Gang Dispute

ODESSA, FL (970 WFLA) - Pasco County Sheriff's deputies are on the lookout for the two men pictured above in the murder of a man in broad daylight on Thursday. 

A witness told investigators that two men on motorcycles approached a man in a truck stopped for a red light at the exit ramp of the Suncoast Parkway near the intersection of State Road 54. The two men fired three shots toward the man and drove away. The suspects shielded their faces with bandannas and covered their license plates. 

Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco says the victim was a member of a motorcycle gang, and the suspects are likely from a rival gang.  

This morning, Tampa Police located and confiscated a motorcycle that may be related to the case.  

Sheriff Nocco is thankful that no one else was hurt.

"The time of day this occurred, there's a lot of people out. There's a lot of kids off from school now...this is the time of rush-hour traffic," Nocco said

"This shooting, thank God an innocent person was not killed."
