TAMPA, FL. – On September 15, 2019, shortly after 9 p.m., at Palifox Street E. near 44th Street N., an adult male, identified as Donta Allen, was found suffering from upper body trauma.
Donta died as a result of his injuries.
Law Enforcement learned approximately 20 minutes before Donta’s murder, that he was dropped off near NetPark in the 5700 block of Hillsborough Avenue E.
It is however unclear how Donta ended up at Palifox Street E. and 44th Street N.
Tampa Police have released two photographs that show Donta Allen sitting on a table at NetPark approximately 10 minutes before he was found at Palifox Street E. and 44th Street N. with fatal injuries.
