Mr. Santana then called Vazquez’s nephew, Raymond Correa, 47, and requested he respond to the business, as Correa was usually able to calm Vazquez down.

At first, Vazquez responded to Correa’s attempts to calm him by unloading a firearm and placing the firearm on a counter.

A short time later, Vazquez produced a second firearm and shot Correa with it. Deputies say, after Correa fell to the ground, Vazquez continued to shoot him.  Correa died on the scene.

When deputies arrived on the scene, Vazquez surrendered without incident.

On February 25, 2022, with approval from both the family of Raymond Correa and the Office of the State Attorney, Roger Vazquez entered a guilty plea for the charges of Murder in the Second Degree with a Firearm and Aggravated Assault with a Firearm.

Vazquez was sentenced to a total of 32 years in the Department of Corrections, with the first 25 years being served day for day.
