The shooting occurred after a physical confrontation inside the store. No suspect has been arrested, but detectives are seeking help from the public to identify three persons of interest.
Police will continue to have an increased presence on Clearwater Beach as spring break continues and the number of visitors, especially teenagers and young adults, grows.
“We want everyone to feel safe when they come to the beach, or anywhere in Clearwater,” Slaughter said. “While violent crime is lower in Clearwater than other places, unfortunately it is not completely immune to the increase in violent crime being seen across the country.”
Anyone with information on the case should call Clearwater Police at 727-562-4242.
