TPD Investigating Two Homicides

Three murders so far, the latest on Sunday, was oddly similar to one 48 hours earlier.

Police are not commenting on any possible connection. Last Friday and Sunday, two men were killed and the Tallahassee police are treating both as homicides, saying both are not random acts.

Police looked for any possible clues for a murder on Daniels Street in south side Tallahassee.

"We are investigating further, identifying any other potential witnesses. Interviewing them, we are working up some more forensic evidence,” explains Stewart Clendenin, spokesman for Tallahassee Police Department.

Neighbors say they're shocked.

"It's a quiet neighborhood,” says resident Theodore Wright.

Police say early Sunday morning, they were called out to Daniels Street to investigate an abandoned car.

"Around 1 a.m. I heard a loud noise, it woke me from a sound sleep. I didn't go out at the time, but I heard the police coming,” recalls Wright.

When they got there, they say they found 25-year-old Oliver Walker dead. An autopsy would show he died of a gunshot wound.

Just 48 hours earlier police were on the scene of another murder, the victim was 23-year- old Sedric Washington.

"The only thing we can tell you is these are not random killings. We believe they are not random in nature. We are pulling all resources to solve these crimes and arrest these suspects,” Clendenin adds.

Police won't answer any questions about whether these murders are related, "We aren't going to answer those questions for investigation reasons, it might jeopardize our investigation, when we catch a suspect, we want the charges to stick,” explains Clendenin.

We are only half way through the year, and already in Tallahassee there have been six murders. Last year, there were only three total. A quick search of court records shows both of the victims did have some history of trouble.

Oliver Walker had a run in with an officer two years ago, in which the officer pulled his gun on him during a traffic stop. That charge was later dropped.

Sedric Washington, who was killed on Friday, has a lengthy rap sheet, including grand theft and a concealed weapon charge.
