Suspect arrested in fatal shooting at Tampa club

A Dover man faces a charge of second-degree murder in a fatal shooting at a Tampa nightclub early Sunday morning.

Deputies say surveillance video, witness accounts and blood found at his home linked 18-year-old Dougie Glidden to the shooting.

According to deputies, Glidden fatally shot 49-year-old Maribel Sanchez-Garza, of Plant City, around 3 a.m. at Club 301, 8222 U.S. Highway 301.

Deputies say Glidden was pepper-sprayed and ejected by security, but later returned in a white, 4-door Jeep Cherokee SUV that witnesses identified as the suspect vehicle.

Surveillance video shows Glidden leaving and smashing out the passenger side window of a white truck, using his forearms and fists, suffering severe cuts and lacerations and began bleeding profusely.

Glidden then fired 5-6 shots in the direction of the club, one of which struck Sanchez-Garza, deputies say.

A blood trail led to a rear parking lot where a .380 casing and projectile were located, deputies say, and surveillance video then showed the white SUV leaving the scene.

On Sunday around 4:30 p.m., deputies say Glidden entered the South Florida Baptist Hospital with severe lacerations and bruising to his arms and fists, and making statements indicating he was the subject that had been pepper sprayed and had broken the window.

Detectives executing a search warrant found a Taurus .380 in his bedroom, as well as bloody clothing worn at the club. The SUV also was located at a friend’s house and impounded.

Glidden was arrested and transported to Orient Road Jail, deputies say.
