The man wanted for the series of home invasions in apartments near the USF Tampa campus has died from gunshot wounds after a shootout with police. Police captured 24 year old Charlie Christopher Bates on U.S. 301 near I-4 in Hillsborough County. This came after a chase, crash, and police shooting at Bates. He was reportedly shot several times. No officers are believed to be hurt. Bates faces a series of charges.
Hillsborough deputies say the incidents happened at the Cambridge Woods apartments, the Oaks apartments, and the Eagle's Point apartments north of USF. Four men were tied up and four women were raped.
In the Cambridge Woods attack, Larry McKinnon with the Sheriff's Office says their first word of the attack came when the female victims showed up at Florida Hospital. They went to the apartment and found four men in the process of freeing themselves.
Shortly after that attack, a woman who lives at the Eagle's Point apartments, inside the city of Tampa, says the man forced his way into her home. She pleaded with him to leave, according to Tampa police, and he did.
At the Oaks apartments, across 42nd Street from Cambridge Woods, he forced 25 people at a party into a bedroom at gunpoint, fired a shot into the ground and left. Then he fired at a man who was running into an apartment. None of the bullets struck the man.
Sons Of Barack’S!
Video is cut off to short.
Wolf among the sheep. And the sheep were bleating loud.
FOUR GUYS in the room and he scared them all.
Not anymore he doesn't.
Another thread had a guy with tattoo’s all over his face. Is this a different guy?
Different crime. The tattoo guy committed a crime spree in Nebraska. This guy committed a crime spree in Florida.
So was this refugee from dumbassistan’s life. Maybe they’ll want to name an asteroid after him ala trayboi marteen. Or at least a hemmorhoid. (SP)
They’re gonna get angel corey on the case to try him post mortem. She should have great success with that one too.
At a news conference after Bates' death, Sheriff David Gee said detectives were investigating claims apparently made by Bates to one of the victims -- that Bates had murdered someone earlier in the day.Good riddance to him. Cops did an outstanding job on this one.
Detectives have a cell phone that may have come from the murder victim. Their investigation continues.
Yeah, I was going to comment on that...does anyone proof read anymore?
I’m chatting online with a friend who was at the scene a few cars behind. She is pretty shook up.
Not as serious as the ones he's facing now..............
This is the video ya want to watch...Not that sugarcoated version.
Try this non-sugar coated version.
Think of the hundreds of crimes that will never be committed...
The hundreds of thousands in tax dollars NOT spend by the court system for this thug...
probation officers and policemen spared having to deal with him... victims that won't require years recovering... Why, it's almost like a blessing...
In re: “There’s been a controversy over concealed carry on the USF campus for quite some time.”
