AUTHORITIES HAVE A MAN IN CUSTODY IN CONNECTION WITH THE MONDAY SHOOTING DEATH OF A SARASOTA SECURITY GUARD.  20 YEAR OLD BRADLEY BOLDEN WAS ARRESTED LATE LAST NIGHT AND CHARGED WITH MURDER IN THE DEATH OF 26 YEAR OLD MATTHEW LITTLE AT THE MARINER POINT APARTMENTS IN SOUTH ST. PETERSBURG.  INVESTIGATORS SAY BOLDEN ADMITTED TO KILLING LITTLE BECAUSE HE DISLIKED SECURITY PERSONNEL AND LAW ENFORCEMENT.  DETECTIVES SAID THEY RECEIVED A TIP THAT SOMEONE SPOTTED BOLDEN FLEEING THE COMPLEX RIGHT AFTER THE SHOOTING CARRYING TWO HANDGUNS.  LITTLE’S BODY WAS FOUND BY POLICE NEAR THE COMPLEX’S POOL AND TENNIS COURTS.  HIS GUN WAS MISSING FROM ITS HOLSTER, BUT DETECTIVES BELIEVE BOLDEN DID NOT USE LITTLE’S GUN TO KILL HIM, ALTHOUGH THEY HAVE YET TO LOCATE EITHER GUNS.  LITTLE’S FAMILY IN SARASOTA WAS NOTIFIED OF THE ARREST.  HE HAD BEEN A SECURITY OFFICER WITH CRITICAL INTERVENTION SERVICES FOR TWO YEARS AND WAS HOPING TO BECOME A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER.
