- Shooting occurred after Vazquez started acting erratically
The shooting occurred inside the gaming center at Lucky Fish Games in Spring Hill after witnesses said the manager, Roger Vazquez, 55, started acting erratically and waving a gun around inside the business.
According to the report, another manager, Laau Paselio, called the owner, Jose Santana, to report Vazquez'a erratic behavior. Santana then called Vazquez'a nephew, Raymond Correa, 44, who witnesses said is usually able to calm Vazquez down.
Deputies said when Correa arrived, he and Paselio were able to talk with Vazquez and convince him to unload the gun and put it down.
However, Vazquez pulled out a second gun that he had been concealing a short time later and fired twice at Correa. The report stated that Vazquez continued to shoot Correa as he laid on the ground. Correa died from his injuries.
Several witnesses called 911 to report the shooting. One man even tried to confront Vazquez about the situation, deputies said. Vazquez then pointed the gun at the man and told him it didn't concern him.
That person was able to exit the business and wait outside for law enforcement to arrive.
When deputies arrived, Vazquez surrendered to law enforcement without incident.
Vazquez faces charges of homicide and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and is being held on a $70,000 bond.
