Sheriff: The ice cream man murdered
(Collaboration with Jessica Vander Velde and Ileana Morales)
RUSKIN — For 10 months, the ice cream man waited for justice.
Michael Edward Keetley, 39, had been shot in the chest, leg and hand for a mere $12.
The thugs who did it were never caught. So Keetley began asking questions of his own.
On Thanksgiving, deputies say, he was ready for revenge. They say he pulled up to a Ruskin home with a gun and fake cop gear, ordered seven men to lie down on a porch and opened fire from right to left, hitting six.
Two died. All were innocent, deputies say.
Those who had attacked Keetley in January remain at large.
