Carson Senfield shot dead after getting into stranger’s car

Following a night of celebrating his 19th birthday, a University of Tampa student Carson Senfield got into the incorrect car and thought it was his Uber. The driver then shot the kid dead.

The mysterious shooter has not yet been apprehended, but Buffalo, New York resident Carson Senfield was fatally shot at 1 a.m. on Saturday after accidently getting into the stranger’s car.

The State’s Attorney must now decide whether the motorist was justified in murdering the kid under Florida’s contentious “Stand Your Ground Law” after the sophomore, who was not known to the driver, was shot in the upper body.

The “stand your ground” statute in Florida allows citizens to use lethal force to defend themselves if they feel under immediate danger. Contrary to other states’ rules, you are not obligated to use deadly force before attempting to flee.

In Tampa, Florida, the adolescent was declared dead at the scene, and the unidentified motorist is helping the authorities.

He tried to get into another car after getting out of an Uber that had driven him close to his home on West Arch Street.

According to police, the driver of that car said he shot and murdered Seinfeld out of fear for his life.

According to the Tampa Police Department, the motorist was not detained; it is now up to the State Attorney’s Office to determine whether or not the gunman was justified in his actions.

Darren Senfield, Carson’s distraught father, said to WGRZ: “To us, the specifics will play themselves out.” We are sad, devastated, and heartbroken about not having our kid.

‘It was a senseless tragedy that we’re still trying to figure out, but at this point, it doesn’t really matter, we don’t have our Carson with us.

‘We spoke with him two days before he was celebrating his birthday with friends on Friday evening.

‘He enjoyed his people whether they were in West New York or his people in Tampa. He was such a generator of great vibes.’

He said: ‘From the moment I met the kid, the brightest light in the room. I mean, Carson could make anyone laugh at any moment.

Jacob Skintges, a friend of Carson’s, praised the “brightest light in the room.”

‘I just want everyone to remember him as that because that’s what he was.’

 A GoFundMe has been set up after the tragic loss, but his father said that the money will be used to set up a scholarship in his son’s name.

He added: ‘We will direct that (money to) a scholarship at a later date to make sure kids like Carson, kids that have that love for people have the chance to go to college.’
