Rion L. Schofield
LARGO - The Largo police are currently seeking a suspect in connection with an attempted homicide that occurred about 7:39 p.m. July 20 at Bayhead Action Park, 375 Seminole Blvd.

The shooting occurred in the area of the skate park, police said.

According to a police report, the suspect has been identified as Rion L. Schofield, 23. Police said Schofield is a black male, about 5 foot 5 inches tall, 160 pounds. He wears prescription glasses.

Investigation has revealed the suspect showed up alone at the park on a bicycle and started a verbal disturbance with a juvenile male subject that was already at the location with some friends, police said. During the verbal disturbance the suspect displayed a gun before riding away. As the suspect started to ride away, he pointed the gun back toward the juveniles and fired multiple rounds. One round struck a 17-year-old male in the arm/wrist area.

Schofield is believed to be armed and dangerous. Anyone with information on Rion Schofield's location is asked to call the Largo Police Department at 727-587-6730 reference case # 14-006756. The primary investigator is Detective C. Berard.

Police said the shooting does not appear to be a random event.
