5 SHOOTINGS IN FIRST 10 DAYS OF MAY 2018 IN NO GO NEWTOWN SECTION OF SARASOTA FL

Almost daily shootings have become the norm in the ultra violent section of Sarasota Fl called Newtown, 5 shootings in the first 10 days of May. The out of control, out in the open violence where it seems everyone is carrying a gun and ready to use it, begs one to remember the line from the end of Jack Nicholson's sardonic private eye Jack Gittes movie 'Chinatown' by substituting Newtown, "Forget it, Jake. It's Newtown."

5). Thursday, May 03, 2018. 3 Black Males Who Fit Description of the Thugs Who Murdered Travis Combs in Newtown Section of Sarasota Fl do Armed Robbery Five Guys Restaurant 5354 Fruitville Road Sarasota Fl. Detectives are currently investigating an Armed Robbery that occurred Thursday night, 5/03/2018, in Sarasota. Deputies first responded to the Five Guys restaurant at 5354 Fruitville Road at 11:08 p.m. According to store employees, three black males entered the business, (looks like through the back door in photo above), wearing masks and carrying guns. The suspects took money from the safe as well as cell phones and wallets from employees. 
Note in the photo above to the far left that one of the black thugs has the employee down on the floor with a gun pointed to the back of his head, fearing for his life, also note one of the thugs is wearing black basketball shorts with white block vertical lettering on his left leg, (looks like JORDAN). I have seen these type of shorts before, the white lettering is on the sides of both legs. Did any of the armed robbers say “give it up”?
One of the armed robbers at the Five Guys Restaurant was wearing black basketball shorts with white block vertical letters and black sneakers with a distinctive white rubber sole, see photo above. Members of the Sheriff Department agency’s K-9 Unit responded but were unable to locate the suspects. 
Apparently it looks like one of the thugs who robbed the Five Guys Restaurant is a 'Air Jordan Fan'. A witness in the parking lot reported they may have been traveling in a black Nissan Altima. The black male suspects are all described as being between 5’9” and 5’11” tall with medium builds. They were wearing dark clothing, masks and gloves. Anyone with information is asked to contact our Criminal Investigations Section at 941.861.4900.
WHO SHOT TRAVIS COMBS “give it up”: From information that I obtained on my own it has been discovered that Travis Combs was known to pull his vehicle into the empty lot on 22nd Street and sell marijuana from his car. It also became apparent to the 3 local Newtown thugs that Travis Combs would have large amounts of cash on him from the drug sales. Apparently Reginald Parker and Jabez Spann witnessed 3 local Newtown thugs rob and murder Travis Combs for his money, he was shot once in the upper torso. 
I will identify the 3 Newtown thugs that murdered Travis Combs, his photo above, in this article as Thug A, Thug B, and Thug C. The three thugs surround 31-year-old Travis Combs in his car in the empty lot in Newtown shouting “give it up” to Combs as he got out and tried to run. “I ain’t got it,” said Combs, surrounded by the trio in the empty lot in the 1600 block of 22nd Street on August 28th 2017. A witness identified the shooters of Travis Combs as 3 black males with average builds and about 5'9" to 5'11" tall.
