Fake Cop Executes Brothers During Poker Game

Brothers Juan and Sergio Guitron were laid to rest on Tuesday, following a bizarre crime in which a  man pretending to be a deputy ordered the men to the floor before executing them.
The incident occured at around 2:30 a.m. on Thursday in the Tampa-area, when some friends had gathered to play a game of poker on the porch of a friend’s house in Ruskin.
Juan, 28, and Sergio, 22, were playing poker along with their cousins, Ramon Galan, Richard Cantu, 31 and two others Gonzalo Guevara, 28 and Daniel Beltran, when a man claiming to be an enforcement officer and wearing a black t-shirt that read “Sheriff” pulled up in a green minivan outside the house.
The imposter then ordered the five players face down to the ground and asked them about a person they had never heard of, when Daniel Beltran walked around the corner.
The armed man then opened fire and shot each of the men on the floor before escaping, but whereas four of the men survived the encounter the Guitron brothers were not so fortunate.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is now searching as a matter of “top priority” for a man described as white with short bushy hair and aged between 30 and 40.
The bizarre killings have so far baffled friends and family, with close friend Bryan Kelly commenting that the Guitron brothers were good guys and there was no reason for the attack.
Also, a close family friend expressed her worries that the killer was still at large and said:
“We can’t eat, we can’t sleep.  We’re trying to get over this incredible loss, but that’s hard to do when there is no face to the killer yet.  He could be here right now and we wouldn’t even know it.”
A large crowd of people attended the funeral service at St. Anne’s Church in Ruskin and
anyone with any information that might help catch the killer is urged to  contact Crimestoppers on 1-800-873-TIPS.
