Camera catches end of Bradenton shooting victim’s life

MANATEE -- A digital surveillance camera mounted at Costantino Auto Body Shop on Ninth Street West caught the last moments of a shooting victim’s life Thursday.

The images of a fatally wounded Eric Sutton staggering backwards into the shop, only to collapse to the ground after several moments, were given to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office as evidence.

Sutton, 46, was later pronounced dead at Manatee Memorial Hospital.

An autopsy found that Sutton died of multiple gunshot wounds, according to the sheriff’s office.

Jeremy Sneperger, 26, has been charged with murder in the case. He was arrested Thursday evening in Bradenton, and was being held at the Manatee County jail on bonds totaling more than $1.2 million on murder and other charges.
