Detectives assigned to the Robbery/Homicide Unit are investigating an apparent murder-suicide shooting involving an adult male and his roommate/brother-in-law.

On August 19, 2020 at approximately 11:16 a.m., deputies responded to 4052 46th Avenue North, Apt. #1 in St. Petersburg, to conduct a welfare check on 61-year-old Keith Harvey, after he had not been heard from in several days.

Once deputies arrived on-scene, they forced entry into the home due to suspicious circumstances.

Detectives say once deputies entered, they discovered Harvey’s roommate/brother-in-law, 56-year-old Stephen McCrave deceased from an apparent gunshot wound. Deputies also found Harvey deceased in another room from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Detectives believe Harvey shot McCrave, and then took his own life. Several suicide notes were found inside the home.  

Next of kin has been notified.

The investigation continues.
