The video shows Keveon D. Smith, 22, talking with two other people in the parking lot of 320 N. Magnolia Ave. around 2:13 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 26. A man in a black jacket comes from behind Smith and punches him in the head.

As Smith runs away, the man in the black jacket fires at him with a gun. A second man in a light-colored jacket and a third man with long dreadlocks also shot at Smith.

Smith was found with life-threatening injuries in the parking lot of the Bank of America on Orange Avenue. He was pronounced dead after being taken to a local hospital. At Club Lit, police found two additional victims who had been shot, though their wounds were not life-threatening.




Police are also looking for a black Volkswagen Passat that the suspects appear to have used to flee. People with information on the homicide can call 407-246-2900.
