What:  Pinellas Sheriff’s homicide detectives are investigating a homicide that occurred around 12:30 p.m. , July 4th, at the Riviera Mobile Home Park, located at 29141 US Highway 19 North – just north of SR 580 on the east side.

 The victim is Keith Lewandowski – identified above, he died of a gunshot wound to the head.  A male suspect – who is a neighbor – is in custody and is identified at Bruce Schunk. Detectives say he declined to speak to them about the incident.  He will be taken to the Pinellas County Jail.

 No one else was hurt.

 When:   Sheriff’s deputies received the call around 12:30 p.m., July 4, 2012.

 Where:  Deputies responded to the residence of Keith Lewandowski and his wife Sandra.

 How/Why:   According to deputies, there is a history of neighbor trouble involving the Schunk and other neighbors – including Lewandowski. Today, Schunk reportedly entered Lewandowski’s mobile home uninvited, made several comments to Lewandowski and his wife, Sandra, and pointed the large caliber handgun at Sandra. Keith stepped in between Sandra and Schunk, and Schunk shot him once. Lewandowski was pronounced dead at the scene. Detectives say there was no incident of any kind between the two before Schunk entered the Lewandowski home.

 The suspect then reportedly returned to his mobile home. He was later arrested without further incident and the handgun used in the shooting was recovered.

 The investigation continues.

Comments are closed.
