Police: 12-year-old shot, killed homeless man
Published On: Jul 31 2014 11:12:20 AM EDT



JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

A 12-year-old boy shot and killed a 54-year-old homeless man last month in a Westside parking lot, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

Sharron Townsend is charged with murder in the death of Thomas Trent, who was found dead at a vacant business in the 7400 block of 103rd Street about 7:20 a.m. June 28. Police said Townsend shot Trent one time in the head.

Police said surveillance video was obtained from a nearby business that helped them identify two persons of interest after receiving tips from the public. The video shows the two in the area at about 2:25 a.m.

Investigators said one of them, 16-year-old Darrel Royal, was incarcerated in connection with an unrelated robbery, and when interviewed Wednesday night, he implicated Townsend.

Police said they then interviewed Townsend, who they said admitted to shooting Trent with a .22-caliber gun. Police said the gun has not been recovered.

Investigators said Townsend and Trent did not know each other, and the killing appears to be random. Police said Trent was not robbed.

14-year-old pleads guilty, will be sentenced to 10 to 40 years for 2014 death of homeless man
updated Tue, Jun 28, 2016 @ 10:15 am



A Jacksonville child who was arrested for murder when he was 12 years old pleaded guilty to second-degree murder Tuesday morning.

Sharron “Tommy” Townsend, who is now 14, shot 54-year-old Thomas Zona Trent in the head June 28, 2014
, on 103rd Street on the Westside. At the time of his arrest police said Townsend probably didn’t know Trent, who used a walker and was among the homeless who stuck around the strip of shops and the abandoned businesses next door.

The office of State Attorney Angela Corey chose to try Townsend as an adult but waived the 25-year minimum mandatory sentence. His sentence will be 10 to 40 years to be decided by Circuit Judge Jack Schemer the week of Aug. 22.

Teenager sentenced to 30 years for murder committed when he was 12

A Jacksonville teen was sentenced Monday morning to 30 years in prison for a murder he committed when he was 12 years old.



Fifteen-year-old Sharron “Tommy” Townsend pleaded guilty in June to second-degree murder in the slaying of 54-year-old Thomas Zona Trent in June 2014.
As a part of the plea, Townsend’s sentence was to be between 10 and 40 years.
