Clearwater Murder Suspect Arrested From Sunset Lounge Slaying

CLEARWATER, Fla. – Clearwater Police say that Jarvis Miles was arrested and he is being booked into the Pinellas County Jail this evening after turning himself in. He is being charged with second-degree murder in the death of Samir Dauti.

Two suspects who were involved in the fight at the Sunset Lounge, 2558 Sunset Point Road, have been arrested. The search for a third person, the man who pulled a knife and stabbed the victim, remains at large.

A warrant for second-degree murder was issued for 34-year-old Jarvis Miles.

Miles has been arrested nearly a dozen times in Pinellas County since 2008. He has multiple tattoos over his body, including on his neck and face.

Detectives say Miles pulled a knife during a fight at the bar and stabbed the victim, 33-year-old Samir Dauti, who died at Mease Countryside Hospital from his injuries less than an hour after the incident.

Dauti was trying to intervene in the fight as a peacemaker when he was stabbed; he was not involved in the original altercation.

Detectives were able to locate two other people who were with Miles and involved in the fight: Christopher Pittman, who pointed a gun at another man, and Shannon Carias, who struck another woman in the head with a pool stick.

Both were booked into the Pinellas County Jail early this morning.  Pittman was charged with aggravated assault with a firearm; Carias was charged with aggravated battery. The murder weapon, a knife, was recovered by detectives.
