Join Ya Girl Renae & Zap as they discuss the troubling SoHo shootings in Florida. It's a heartbreaking situation where young people seem to be out of control, and the city appears unable to manage it. They express their frustration and consider leaving the city, as it just doesn't make sense anymore. For a long time, they've advocated for stronger gun control in the state, but change seems unlikely with so many new residents moving in and exacerbating the issues.

In the early hours of May 12, 2024, Tampa's vibrant SoHo district was shaken by a tragic shooting that left two men dead and another injured. The incident occurred around 3 a.m. in the 500 block of South Howard Avenue, an area known for its bustling nightlife and popular eateries.


The Incident

Tampa police officers were already patrolling the area for crowd control when they heard gunshots. Upon arriving at the scene, they found three men with gunshot wounds. Kenneth Washington, 28, and Kevon Christmas, 23, were transported to a local hospital but succumbed to their injuries. The third victim remains hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries​ (


Investigation Details Preliminary investigations suggest that the men involved were acquainted and had engaged in a dispute that escalated into violence. Tampa Police Chief Lee Bercaw expressed his condolences to the families affected and assured the community that detectives are working tirelessly to gather evidence and track down the suspect​ 


Community Response

The SoHo shootings have sparked a wave of concern among local residents and business owners. Many are calling for increased security measures and more proactive approaches to prevent such incidents in the future. The Tampa Police Department has responded by stepping up patrols in the area and engaging with the community to address their concerns​ (



Calls for Action

This tragic event has also reignited the debate over gun control in Florida. Advocates argue that stricter laws are necessary to prevent firearms from falling into the wrong hands. However, with a growing population and increasing influx of new residents, many believe that comprehensive measures must be implemented to address the broader issues contributing to such violence.

Moving Forward


As the investigation continues, the Tampa Police Department urges anyone with information or video footage related to the incident to come forward. Community members are hopeful that justice will be served and that steps will be taken to enhance the safety and security of the SoHo district.


This tragic incident serves as a somber reminder of the challenges urban communities face in maintaining public safety amidst rapid growth and change. The city of Tampa is now left to mourn the loss of two young lives and to reflect on how best to prevent such senseless violence in the future.

Desantis made a huge mistake allowing guns in the state. This was his first problem. The shootings will only continue to get worse. I assure you this. Its so terrible to see the city of Tampa and other cities in Florida go down the drain for a gun carry law.
