The Polk County Sheriff’s Office says 41-year-old Kelvin Ford (also known as “Cat Man”) is wanted for 2nd degree murder and tampering with evidence.
His charges stem from an incident that occurred Friday morning, June 18th, in the Brenda Lane area in unincorporated Auburndale. Around 11:00 a.m. that morning, Ford shot a man who was sitting in a vehicle. The victim then drove away from Ford, ultimately crashing on Old Dixie Highway.
The victim was transported to Lakeland Regional Medical Center, where he later died from his injury. Kelvin Ford is still at-large.
“This was not a random shooting – Ford and the victim knew each other,” Sheriff Grady Judd said. “We are asking that if you see him, please do not confront or engage with him – he is being considered ARMED AND DANGEROUS.”
