A Polk County, Florida deputy sheriff investigating a disturbance at the Economy Motor Lodge in Dundee, Florida, was injured when a homemade explosive device concealed on 39-year-old Marco Antonio Tolentino of Dundee was triggered, firing a 12 gauge shotgun buckshot round. The single round struck the deputy’s hand and struck Tolentino in his hand and shoulder. The deputy was transported to the hospital with a serious injury to his hand. Tolentino was also transported and is being treated for non-life-threatening injuries. Both are in stable condition.

Marco Antonio Tolentino

Deputies responded to a disturbance call for service on Sunday, August 08, 2021 at approximately 9:30 p.m. to the Economy Motor Lodge in Dundee. Upon arrival on scene, the deputies were directed to a woman who was sitting on a bench at the neighboring motel, the Monticello Motel. The woman had walked to the neighboring motel prior to the arrival of law enforcement.

Another deputy arrived on scene as a backup. Marco Antonio Tolentino, apparently unrel ated to the disturbance call, approached the scene on a bicycle. The deputy began interacting with Tolentino, who was being evasive about who he was and said he did not have identification. During the interaction, the deputy asked the suspect if he had anything illegal on him. At that time, the suspect lifted his shirt exposing a metal pipe which was concealed on the suspect’s person; stating the item was for protection.

A portion of “the pipe” was concealed in the suspect’s right pocket and also extended upwards to the abdomen underneath the shirt. The suspect reached for the pipe and the deputy stopped him; telling him that he would retrieve the item. At this point, the deputy was unsure what the item was, but believed it was some sort of weapon based on the interaction. The deputy reached for the item, at which time the suspect also again reached for the item, and also was trying to pull away from him. At that time, the pipe (which is also known as a zip gun or improvised firearm) came apart as it was pulled from the pocket and then a “blast” went off.

Another deputy on scene immediately responded to provide aid; Polk County EMS and other deputies also responded.

Tolentino later told deputies that he had “a tube” with a 12 gauge round in his waistband. He said it went off while being removed. He told deputies he carries “the tube” for protection stated that he made “the tube” himself. He does not have a concealed carry license.

The destructive device has two inter-locking pieces of metal pipe that hold a single shotgun shell. When pressed together, the device is designed to fire the single projectile. The device contained a single spent 12 gauge round (Winchester- 00 buck shot). During a search of Tolentino’s room, additional shotgun rounds of the same nature were located and recovered. Only one shot was fired. No deputies fired any weapons.

As a result of the investigation, Marco Antonio Tolentino was charged with:
·       Attempted felony murder (FL)
·       Possessing or discharging a destructive device (F1)
·       Resisting an officer with violence (F3)
·       Carrying a concealed weapon / firearm (F3)
·       Providing false info to a law enforcement officer (M1)

Tolentino is in custody in an area hospital. He is in stable condition.

The investigation is ongoing. The State Attorney’s Office was notified of the incident and responded to the scene.The standard protocol for deputy-involved shooting, though in this case, no deputy fired any shots, will include three independent investigations: a PCSO criminal investigation will be conducted, Administrative Investigations will conduct an administrative inquiry, and the State Attorney’s Office will conduct a separate review.

Man Yells ‘White Power’ While Firing Gun Outside Florida Bar, Cops Say

TAMPA – A man who fired his weapon outside a South Tampa bar after yelling racial slurs on Monday has been taken into custody.

Just before 9 PM on November 21, 2022, the Tampa Police Department responded to the SOHO Saloon, located at 410 S Howard Ave for a call of shots being fired.

An investigation revealed that Dustin McCann, 30, was removed from the bar for causing a disturbance by repeatedly using the “N-word” towards an African American male security guard. Security escorted McCann from the premises. Shortly after, according to witnesses, McCann entered his vehicle parked across the street in a parking lot, and as he drove away, witnesses reported McCann fired multiple gunshots from his vehicle into the air while yelling “White Power.”

Tampa Police detectives were able to identify McCann and obtain a warrant for his arrest. On Tuesday night, November 22, with the help of the Arcadia Police Department, McCann was located and arrested on four counts of aggravated assault with a firearm and one count of discharging a firearm from a motor vehicle. All of the charges will be enhanced with evidencing prejudice while committing an offense (Hate Crime Enhancement).

“Racist conduct like this has no place in our community, which is why our Tampa Police Officers worked swiftly to find this suspect in less than 24 hours and bring him to justice,” said Chief Mary O’Connor. “He will now be held accountable for his criminal actions.”
