From station WWSB:
The shooting happened Tuesday around 10pm in the area of 32nd Street and Lemon Avenue. That’s where they say Lamar shot the two people: one a 22-year-old man dressed in women’s clothes who had to be flown to Blake Medical Center in Bradenton; the other a 19-year-old man who was taken to Sarasota Memorial.
Police originally thought that one victim was a woman, because one of the men wore women’s clothing at the time of the shooting, and his driver’s license identifies him as female. Turns out he is transgendered, but has not had the surgery to become a woman.
Lamar faces serious charges from the shooting itself, but could face more if police learn that it connects to a victim’s gender. “If we find out that it is involved with a hate crime, we will aggressively go after bringing charges. Right now we have no evidence of that specifically,” says Sarasota Police Chief Bernadette DiPino.
