20-year-old Harrison Boonstoppel identified as the second victim killed in shooting during Halloween celebrations in Ybor City

22-year-old Tyrell Philips has been arrested and charged in connection to shooting that left 2 dead, 16 injured.



Additional videos have surfaced on social media, shedding light on the events of the tragic mass shooting in Ybor City.

According to Tampa police, around 3 a.m. on Sunday, a confrontation between two groups escalated into a deadly act of gun violence, claiming the lives of two individuals—an adolescent of 14 years, Elijah Jaquan Wilson, and a 20-year-old man, Harrison Boonstoppel, as later confirmed by their grieving families.

A video captured the moment when a man brandished his firearm in front of the Ybor Taphouse. Panic ensued among the onlookers as shots rang out. “I knew that was going to happen, bro,” one man’s voice is heard saying.

Another responds, “And he’s gone, bro.” In an unaltered video, one of the victims can be seen on the ground in the middle of 7th Avenue.

In another video, officers can be seen tending to numerous victims on blood-stained sidewalks.

A total of 16 additional individuals were hurt in the mayhem, with 15 sustaining gunshot wounds.

According to Tampa police, the majority of these victims, aged between 18 and 27, have been discharged from the hospital.

By 12:30 p.m., the five victims still in the hospital were reported to be in stable condition with injuries not considered life-threatening.
