SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) - Police want to talk to anyone who might have encountered two British tourists in a downtown Sarasota bar shortly before the men were found shot to death in a high-crime neighborhood two miles away.
Investigators say they still don't know why 25-year-old James Cooper and 24-year-old James Kouzaris went to the Newtown neighborhood in north Sarasota or how they got there. The recent University of Suffolk graduates were fatally shot on a street at about 3 a.m. Saturday, allegedly by a 16-year-old boy.
Police released surveillance photos Tuesday of the men in a bar less than two hours before they were killed. They were vacationing in the area with family.
A prosecutor said the grand jury will meet next month to consider adult first-degree murder charges against the 16-year-old suspect.
