Police release video of person of interest in murder of Tampa security guard

Police in Florida have released a video of a young man who they are calling a person of interest in the murder of an apartment complex security guard.

Critical Intervention Services security officer Michael Valentin, 38, was shot and killed at the Grande Oaks Apartment complex Wednesday night in Tampa, Fox 13 reports.

In the video, a young man is seen riding a bicycle that was later left behind at the scene of the shooting, investigators say.

Jeff Grant, who lives in the community, told Fox 13 that the murder has left residents “devastated.”

"They're scared for their families to come outside," he said.
