The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office is investigating another accidental shooting. This shooting took place near the intersection of Pasadena Avenue S and Park Street in S. Pasadena about 10:30 PM on Saturday, March 11, 2017.
Logan McClain, age 29 of St. Petersburg, is employed as a Tampa FireMedic and was a passenger in a 2012 Toyota Tacoma. McClain’s 28 year-old Fiancé, Mareth C. Reum, suffered a gunshot wound to the thigh while she was driving.
According to Pinellas County Detectives, Reum was seen by a citizen being placed into the back seat of the Tacoma pick-up truck by McClain at the intersection of Pasadena Avenue South and Park Street.
A description of the vehicle was given out to local law enforcement agencies in reference to the suspicious circumstances. Detectives later learned that in response to the ‘Be On the Look Out’ (BOLO), the vehicle was stopped by St. Petersburg police at 5756 Central Avenue in St Petersburg. Pinellas County deputies responded to this location.
Detectives say McClain and Reum were near their shared residence when McClain went to retrieve his hand gun from the center console. The hand gun was reported to have accidentally discharged striking Reum in the right thigh area while she was driving.
McClain accessed the injury, rendered aid and placed Reum in the back seat of the vehicle electing to self-transport her to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg.
Detectives say the couple was stopped by St. Petersburg police prior to their arrival at the hospital.
Reum was transported to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg by ambulance for injuries considered non-life threatening.
Detectives say McClain has a valid concealed carry permit and foul play does not appear to be a factor.
