Police identify Kevin Pimentel as teen shooter in Florida ‘food fight’ killing

An argument over food turned fatal Wednesday evening when a teen boy shot and killed his 6-year-old brother, injured his older brother before turning the handgun on himself and now police identify the boys involved in the shocking killing.

Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco identified the 12-year-old boy as Kevin Pimentel explaining that he killed 6-year-old Brady Pimentel and wounded 16-year-old Trevor Pimentel.

The sheriff earlier said there was an argument over food, but at a news conference Thursday he said that was under investigation.

Nocco says that even the mother still doesn’t know all of the details about the shooting. The woman, Helen Campochiaro, reportedly works two jobs and Nocco said she’s “going through an absolute living hell right now.”

The sheriff described a “brutal scene” when officers arrived to the home stating that “Our deputies will live with scars, it’s unbelievable how deep those scare they have to live with.”
The Pasco County School District is offering grief counseling at local schools. Trevor is a student at Hudson High School, and Brady was at Hudson Elementary, he was a first-grader. The Tampa Tribune reports that the boy’s father was active in their lives and would often be seen picking them from their trailer. All of the boys played sports. The Tampa Bay Times reports that Helen Campochiaro and Louis Pimentel divorced in December 2013 and shared custody. The couple lived in Port Richey, Florida, at the time.
