Date: September 16, 2018
Update # 2
The Hernando County Sheriff Office has released the name of the man responsible for a shooting Saturday evening at Lucky Fish Games in Spring Hill.
The incident involving Roger Vazquez, H/M DOB/11-12-1962, started around 5 p.m. inside the gaming center located at 10470 Northcliffe Boulevard.
Witnesses told detectives that Vazquez, who is a manager at the business, had been acting erratically and waving a gun around inside the business.
Another manager, Laau Paselio, who was present during the incident, called the owner, Jose Santana, to report Vazquez’s erratic behavior.
Santana in turn called Vazquez’s nephew, Raymond Correa, H/M DOB/07-18-1974, who witnesses said is usually able to calm Vazquez down.
When Correa arrived, he and Paselio were able to speak with Vazquez. Eventually Vazquez was convinced to unload the gun and place it on the counter.
A short time later Vazquez pulled out a second gun that had been concealed and pointed it at Correa.
After a period of time Vazquez shot Correa twice. As Correa laid on the ground, Vazquez continued to shoot him. Correa died as a result of his injuries.
Upon hearing the shots, witnesses inside the establishment fled to a nearby business to call authorities.
One individual, Michael Midolo, upon learning of the shooting, entered the business where he confronted Vazquez.
When Midolo asked Vazquez what had occurred, Vazquez pointed a gun at Midolo and told him it didn’t concern him.
Midolo exited the business to call 911, and then waited outside for law enforcement to arrive.
When deputies arrived, Vazquez surrendered to law enforcement without incident.
Following questioning, Vazquez was transported to the Hernando County Detention Center where he’s being held on charges of Homicide and Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon.
Vazquez bond was set at $70,000 during First Appearance earlier this morning.
