5:03 am
up after the shooting... investigators haven't said what item was up for sale. whatever it was... it couldn't have been more valuable than a human life. this is an unsettling reminder of the dangers involved with meeting strangers... whether it's for a sale or even a date. many law enforcement agencies have offered up their properties as safe places for meetups. looking for trouble... they're unlikely to even show up. the killer is still on the loose this morning. if you know anything about this crime... call the polk county sheriff's office. for a sixth day... a protest continued in east tampa. people are outraged over the death of lavonia riggins. protesters blocked part of 78th street last night... deputies we're on hand -- the same agency they're protesting. demonstrators reject claims made by the sheriff's office-- which says riggins was reaching for his

from pinellas to sarasota county. several beaches have posted no swim advisories. they've tested positive for high levels of bacteria after hurricane hermine blew past the area. sarasota county lifted its advisory for siesta key late yesterday afternoon. but there's still one in place for north lido beach. many chose to stay out of the water over the labor day weekend. red flags flew from life guard stands warning people to the potential danger
5:08 am
bacteria comes from pet waste and storm water run off. it can be dangerous for the young... elderly... and people with weakened immune systems. many people we spoke with this afternoon said they weren't going to take any chances. other beaches that have the no swim advisories include "honeymoon island", "sand key park", "indian rocks beach" and "redington beach" at 182nd avenue west. the effects of hermine are also being felt on lido key in sarasota. what remained of their beach has now washed away. for years lido beach residents have complained that a

working with the army corp of engineers on a long term plan for about two decades. that plan would provide renourishment every five years and after repeated storms. right now residents say it's badly needed. a smaller restoration project took place nearly 2 years ago. that was done to replace sand that was washed out from debbie. it cost about 4 million dollars months. lido beach residents are waiting on the state's final approval of the long term fix plan. that is still in the works. losing someone you love can be hard... but when you have something physical of theirs to hold onto-- it can be a little bit easier. this morning... a pinellas county man is searching for the owner of an american flag after finding it on the side of the road.
