I personally knew the guy who shot the two people in Greater Hills subdivision. I've known him for years now and as sad as it is to say, it is in the best interest that he was caught. His family is sicilian, and they are absolutely loaded. He has always gotten everything handed to him. It's just a shame, someone with so much potential ended up taking two lives due to DRUGS! I was informed after his mugshot was seen on tv that he left the state. It took a few minutes, but I felt it was best for everyone if I called the tip line to give what information I knew. A few weeks later, the news announced he had been found in the state I was informed he ran to. May God have mercy on Genio, and I hope he gets what he deserves for taking the lives of the two men killed.

"cops don't care here in clermont, gangs & drugs are all over east ridge hs, murder was over a girl."

If you are referring to the two guys killed in the Greater Hills subdivision, please stop believing everything some 15 & 16 year olds tell you. Genio was a personal friend of mine, and his family told me everything that happened, why he fled, and why they helped him. I have heard so many stories coming from middle & high schoolers, but none of you know what really happened, except the 17 yr old he murdered. This was DRUG related, nothing to do with a girl. Genio was a so called "drug lord" of lake co. He's been in trouble many times before this. Sadly, everyone who knew him, knew what he was capable of, but I guess we all thought it would never happen to someone so close to us, that we loved, and so close to home.

So please, stop spreading rumors and lies. That's all that makes up our society now-a-days. None of these high schoolers were there when this happened, so believing what came out of Genio's mouth is the most believable. Besides, do some research, the two that were shot had NUMEROUS complaints about drug trafficking. So think about it, a so called "drug lord" kills two drug traffickers... and you think its over a girl?

Not to be rude, but NO girl in lake county was able to keep Genio's interest, including many of my best friends who dated him. He wouldn't have risked his life over a girl. Money, that's another story.

If you people think that the drugs and crime with gangs just hit Clermont you need to think again I grew up in that town they've been there for a while starting with the Folknation they have been there as long as i can remember just ask the police they have been getting paid off for years. And as far as the drugs go find anyone who isn't on something including the police force I can name cops and thier choices

hm wouldnt you know they finaly got caught, they have been dealing drugs in that house for a while prior to the incident, after the young man's grandmother died in that house he started getting into selling "drugs' in means of making fast money even when he was working he mainly maid his money during drug trafficking as well as having a main "person" in orlando who was aparently the main problem, its almost 2011, and that "man" is still dealing those drugs from what i know he hasnt changed since i knew who he was. i beleive the only way that authorities are going to be able to get a warrent into that house, is having a key witness who knows that their are drugs in their, because of that man those two young men were shot, although the police officers attempt to get the primary shoot was successful, they have to get to the root of the problem and it is the grandson of that house. the guy that shot those men was not at all in self "defense" as far as i know they left th house and the guy went after them and shot them behind their back, taking a life for a small amount of drugs and money... i beg that the justic system takes into consideration that led up to these murders because i dont beleive that jusitice is not served until that grandson is in jail for what he has commited, and induced, by having a drug trafficking house underneath his grandfathers home.

That's what happens when you try to act like your slangin drugs on silver star, you bitches lived in CLERMONT, yeah were fucking old people go to die. i hope genio gets raped constantly in jail, serves him right for being an idiot and running after the two individuals and shooting them in the BACK. i get the individuals who died were clearly in the wrong, going in and robbing people with fake guns, odds are in florida, you'll find someone with a real one especially in hick area lake county.
