Tampa police shooting suspect charged again

TAMPA — A man already facing three counts of mur- der — including two for the fatal shootings of Tampa police officers — has been charged with another killing.

The suspect, 24-year-old Dontae Morris, was charged with first-degree murder Friday for last month’s shooting death of Harold Wright.

Morris had been charged with first-degree murder Saturday for allegedly shooting Tampa police officers David Curtis and Jeffrey Kocab during a traffic stop June 29. He was also charged with a third count of first-degree murder for fatally shooting 21-year-old Derek Anderson in May.

On Thursday, a judge ordered that Courtnee Brantley, the woman who drove away after witnessing the two officers shot, be released from jail while awaiting trial.

Brantley was released Friday and returned to her mothers house in Seffner. She will be under house arrest and monitored by an ankle bracelet.
