Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco says they still don’t know what led to a fight between a group of brothers that ended with two of them dead and another one in the hospital.
At a press conference Thursday morning, Nocco released the names of the brothers; Trevor Pimentel, 16, Kevin Pimentel, 12, Brady Pimentel, 6. He said Kevin would’ve turned 13 at the end of this month.
Nocco said initially they believed the fight was over food but now say Trevor and Kevin were preparing food at the time an argument broke out.
Deputies received the call at 6:19 p.m. from a mobile home in the 16000 block of Bachmann Avenue in Hudson.
“Sixteen-year-old Trevor called 911, telling the dispatcher his brother, Kevin, 12 years old, had just shot Brady, 6, then shot himself,” Nocco said.
A deputy arriving on scene heard a boy screaming and he charged into the house, Nocco said.
Trevor was transported to a local hospital with a non-life threatening gunshot wound, according to deputies. Nocco said Trevor has been cooperative but he is emotional.
“Trevor’s heart rate would go up during interview process with detectives,” Nocco said. “He is grieving.”
The boys’ mother, Helen Campochiaro, was at work. Nocco described her as hard-working, noting she has two jobs and was recently in a car accident but chose to keep working.
An 18-year-old brother that also lives at the home also was not at the residence at the time of the shooting.
Brady attended Hudson Elementary School, Kevin went to Hudson Middle School and Trevor attended Hudson High School in the mornings through virtual education classes, according to Superintendent Kurt Browning.
Crisis teams will be at the elementary and middle schools “as long as we need to,” Browning said. “It’s very tragic but we are working to heal families and students.”
Browning said Trevor attended Marchmen Technical College’s culinary program in the afternoons.
Nocco said there are no signs child protection investigators or law enforcement has ever been to the home before.
