Krisroy Lloyd was found guilty as charged of Second Degree Murder, Shooting Into a Vehicle, and Aggravated Assault with a Firearm. A jury returned the guilty verdict last night
following a three-day trial in Lee County.
The crimes involved a road rage incident that occurred on September 14, 2017 in the wake of Hurricane Irma. The defendant and the victim were both southbound on Leonard Blvd. South in Lee County, when the defendant stopped his car in the roadway. The victim honked his horn at Lloyd, the defendant. Lloyd then exited his vehicle and confronted the victim.
The victim reached for a firearm within his vehicle. The defendant withdrew and returned to his vehicle. As the victim drove away from the scene, Lloyd pointed a firearm at the passenger in the victim’s vehicle and fired a shot into the back window, striking the victim in the back of head. The victim who was 20 years old, died later at the hospital. Sentencing is set for December 6, 2021.
“I want to recognize the heroic efforts of the many citizens who, while driving along Leonard Boulevard, stopped to help. They also provided crucial information to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, who investigated the crime, and the State Attorney’s Office,” said State Attorney Amira Fox.
Assistant State Attorney Hamid Hunter of the State Attorney’s Office Homicide Unit, along with that team, prosecuted the case.
