Suspect Named In Family Dollar Murder

TAMPA, Fla. (970 WFLA) - Tampa police investigators are on the hunt for 23-year-old Demetrius Parks, the man they believe gunned down the manager of a Family Dollar store over the weekend.

Crime Stoppers is also offering a $16,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction of Parks.

Investigators say Parks entered the store Sunday morning and tried to demanded money from a clerk.  That's when Horsley Shorter Jr. tried to help and was shot.  He died at the hospital.

Detectives say they found the car Parks stole from a store employee, but they haven't found Parks yet.
