High School Student Shot Man After Park Encounter, Say Police

MarcusWilsonFlorida police have arrested 18-year old high school student Marcus Wilson for allegedly shooting 30-year old Christopher Ashton Martin earlier this month.

Police claim Wilson admitted that he and Martin had been drinking in a local park when Wilson passed out. He woke up, he says, and found Martin performing oral sex on him.

Wilson told coppers he subsequently kicked Martin to the ground and used the man's own gun to shoot him.

According to the New Port Richey News, Wilson then covered Martin's body with a sleeping bag, took the victim's car and wallet and headed home.

Wilson turned 30 on the day of the shooting, May 13th.

  1. Seems like a 30 year old should not be performing oral sex on a high school student.

    If I were straight or a girl and a 30 year old was doing that to me I would certainly use force to escape the situation.

    ...wouldn't steal anything though and would instead call the police when I was safe. Also would not use deadly force, but I can't imagine what it would be like to wake up and have a stranger giving your oral sex.


    Granted the kid in question may be making up a story to cover for the robbery

  2. Well, now he gets to perform oral sex on someone else in jail. Life is full of surprises.

  4. Florida again. Such an innocent. 18 years old and drinking in a park with a stranger. The 30 year old, of course had a gun, because doesn't everyone these days. Throw in some alleged unwanted gay oral sex, robbery and a murder. Such an American tale. Makes me so proud. I wouldn't set foot in Florida, safer to be in Juarez Mexico.

  5. Why are two strangers drinking in a park together? Is this place known for hook-ups?

    First of all, you don't have sex w/ unconscious people (can we all agree on that?!) but to me, this reeks of closeted-gay-panic.

    Such a shame, b/c he's so very pretty.

  6. this article needs to be corrected, in terms of the last sentence... Martin turned 30, Wilson is the 18 y.o.

    unless this happened 12 years ago, and u r reporting on the anniversary of the event...

  7. Who turned 30? And who's editing the copy here?

  8. Based on the plucked eyebrows and major gayface on Wilson this wasn't the first time Wilson has had a blowjob from a guy!

  9. Something is not right with this story

  10. Wow, so much went wrong here! My money is that he is either using the gay panic as an excuse, or nothing gay happened at all and this young thug just killed someone and stolled his wallet and car.

  11. Give me a break. You meet a man, a total stranger, in the park late at night and start drinking together.

    Anyone want to make a bet this place is known for hook-ups?

    I don't buy this story for a moment. So the kid is so drunk he passes out, wakes up when the guy is performing oral and is sober enough, directly after being so drunk he passes out, that he's able to get the gun from the guy and shoot him???

  12. Was Mr. Martin shot to death? That is not made clear.

  13. When will we wake up and realize that we need to ban handguns??
    So many people from situations like this would still be alive today except for the ease of taking someone's life with a gun.
    Trayvon Martin and on and on and on. So sad and so preventable.

  14. @Paul Wait until we hear the other side of the story, oh, wait, there is no other side of the story when one person is dead.

  15. It's called rape. I would have shot the 30-year-old prick, too. Or else, kicked his ass clear into next year.

  16. Click on the link for the New Port Richey News. The story there is much more clear. Wilson shot AND KILLED Martin, who turned 30 that very day.

  17. @Michael - I was thinking the exact same thing, I don't buy the story either. I'm all for the right for people to own guns, but the Florida law is ridiculous. This is what you get when you allow people to act like it's the Wild West in the 1800's. Any responsible gun owner knows that firearms and alcohol = disaster. Add the fact you now are carrying a loaded pistol in public and it's simply beyond the pale. And the old criminals will still carry guns is true, but if the people involved in this situation were really otherwise law abiding, they wouldn't have the gun now would they... and we wouldn't have 1 person dead and an 18 year old with murder charges against him...

  18. Damn, this blog is becoming sloppy, and you obviously just don't care.

  19. Thank, @Jamal. This is not just "oral sex." This is rape, and that accusation shouldn't be dealt with lightly.

    Posted by: Brian | May 21, 2012 4:06:03 PM

  20. Obviously the police don't believe this story either, or they wouldn't have arrested him and charged him with second degree murder.

  21. "In other news, a known park and back alley hustler has killed one of his tricks in a dispute over money and is trying to cover it up with the old GAY PANIC defense. Hustler to be given the key to the city for ridding us of 1 more gay person." - I mean...

  22. seems like he just wanted some birthday sex

    Posted by: fubu | May 21, 2012 8:12:33 PM

  23. this smells of rough trade. both of them were in the wrong, -i mean a 30 year old drinking with an 18 year a park? i doubt the kid passed out but is probably straight and freaked when he realised he was letting a guy blow him. obviously he shouldnt have killed the man so NO i'm not saying that was justified by any means.

    Posted by: PEB | May 21, 2012 9:16:12 PM

  24. I believe everyone has a right to defend themselves against rape but I don't think that is what happened here. The story doesn't add up. If you shoot someone in self defense, most people don't then steal his wallet and car keys. How would he even know which car was his victims unless he had already been in the man's car? And wasn't the story of Jeff Conaway waking up to find John Travolta blowing him just in the news? Sounds like this 18 year old just adopted that story to cover up his crime.
