Trevor Blumenfeld, 19, Is Shot While Skateboarding in Palm Coast’s LL-Section; Shooter Is At Large

| November 4, 2013

The shooting took place near the stop sign at Llovera Place and Lloyd Trail just before 8 p.m. Monday.

The shooting took place near the stop sign at Llovera Place and Lloyd Trail just before 8 p.m. Monday.

A young man skateboarding in the area of Llovera Place and Lloyd Trail, in the Palm Coast neighborhood just south of the Flagler County Airport, was shot just before 8 this evening.

The victim was identified as Trevor Blumenfeld, 19. At 11:30 p.m., he was in surgery, in critical condition. He also suffered a collapsed lung.

Tuesday morning, he was in stable condition.

Flagler County Sheriff’s deputies, detectives and the department’s new Crime Scene Investigator unit swarmed to the area, but the assailant was still at large at close to 11 p.m.

“It does not appear to be a random act, it appears the victim and the shooter all knew each other,” Cmdr. Steve Cole, the Sheriff’s Offife’s head of investigations, said late Monday night.

Blumenfeld was flown by Flagler County Fire Flight to Halifax hospital in Daytona Beach in a trauma evacuation. He was shot in the arm and the stomach, by the same bullet, and at one point was not responsive at the scene.

A woman riding her bike in the neighborhood sometime after 7:45 p.m. heard five gunshots. But she didn’t see anything, or see cars leave the area.

“We’ve heard different statements, anywhere from three to five shots, but the victim was only shot one time,” Cole said.

Sheriff’s deputies canvassed the area–Laguna Forest Trail, Citation Boulevard, Lloleeta Path, Llama Trail–but residents were not able to provide much information. The neighborhood is connected to Belle Terre Boulevard by Laguna Forest Trail to the north, and Citation Boulevard to the South. Lloyd Trail and Llovera Place were closed.

It isn’t yet clear whether there were just one assailant or more than one, but the assailant(s) was in a dark-colored vehicle “last seen traveling down Lloyd,” Cole said.

The neighborhood was reopened to normal traffic by 11:30 p.m.

Tuesday morning, the neighborhood was as indistinct as on any other day of the week: elementary age children just two blocks from the scene of the shooting were walking off to their bus stop, a few people drove off to work, a man and a woman walked by the spot briskly, walking a dog. This morning, the only sign that there’d been some activity in the area was the deep ruts in the shoulders at the intersection where the shooting took place, from the number of law enforcement and other public safety units that had filled the place Monday evening.

There is only one house across the street where the shooting took place, with a sign in the yard (“Give us a brake Slow Down Watch Your Speed”) reflecting the demographics of the neighborhood: there are quite a few children around, if spread out across the sparsely built subdivision. The spot where Blumenfeld fell is between several unbuilt, thickly overgrown lots.

Trevor’s uncle, Jimmy Blumenfeld, shared the following on Facebook: “My nephew Trevor Blumenfeldfeld was shot last night while skate boarding and is said that most likely he knew the assailant. If any one knows of any leads please let us know. Also we are hearing of a kid name Spank if any one knows. Lots of prayers thank you for your support.”

Blumenfeld was raised in Flagler Beach, attending Old Kings Elementary, Indian Trails Middle School and Matanzas High School. He has one brother. He is the son of Sue Harris, the Realtor, and Bunky Blumenfeld, who owns a tile business. His grandmother owns the Si Como No Motel in Flagler Beach. Trevor has a son of his own, about 18 months old.

Tuesday update on Jimmy Blumenfeld’s Facebook page: “Thank you to every one for your help, support and prayers. Trevor Blumenfeld is still in critical condition but is showing signs of improvements. Your thoughts and prayers are much needed. The investigators are awesome and working hard to catch the coward/s who did this and should be locked up soon.”

If you have information about this incident please contact Crime Stoppers at 1-888-277-8477. You can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.

    The FCSO is grossly understaffed. Most of the senior officers have been forced out by Manfre and Staley. The last few weeks the neighborhood patrols have been below bare minimum and it is showing. Shootings and violent crimes are exploding in this community. And what does the sheriff do…he answers by feeding his appetite for power. He already stripped bunnel of its police chief and today he announced the hiring of 3 of the Bunnell Police officers. Manfre and Staley are trying to take over Bunnell. Remember this….STALEY will leave the Sheriffs Office within the next three years to run for Sheriff against Manfre. Everything is politics here. The public is getting hurt by this administration. We al suffer. I hope this victim makes it.

    What I am getting ready to say may not be popular but it is fact…….

    When are we as a society, as parents, as humans going to get it that we have let our young people run away with a ridiculous, immature, non growing, lack of responsibility for the last 30 to 40 years. We defend our young people and others when we should be standing up for what is right, fair and displays honesty, integrity and just good common sense. We as a society now turn our heads when young people violate our trust, their misguided sense of what they can do. If we do not get back to standing up for our fellow human being when they are wronged than we are domed to stupidity. Example… When do you let young people copy bad role models? When do you let people disrespect other people? When we as parents stand up for young people or turn and look the other way when they disrespect others we are no better than unintelligent animals…

    Something not right? You know what I mean.

  10. GoodFella says:

    Our thoughts & prayers are with you Bunky in this horrific time. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

  11. scott and linda R says:

    Everyone, this is so sad ,We are praying that he will recover and give info. on this lowlife who shot him.please pray for Sue, Bunkie,and extended family. Our prayers are with you.

  12. Steve says:

    If this person knows who shot him he needs to tell the police. This is something we do not need in our area. Next time a innocent person may be hurt because this individual is trying to prove a point. If this is the case he can move out of here so we can be safe.

  13. Nobody says:

    Looks like he hung out with a really good crowd of kids. PC. Is well known for them

  14. Joseph says:

    Prayers to his family and his health

  15. Crystal Brimer says:

    Please get better soon Trevor. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family at this time. From what I understand I am a family member of yours and just found out. Hope officials bring the person/persons to justice.

  16. Sabrina says:

    Stay Strong Trev, we love you! And Treyton misses you

  17. joe says:

    i can’t feel any sympathy for the kid. I went to school with him and he always seemed to want to live the “gangsta” lifestyle. hopefully this is a wake up call for him

  18. a mom says:

    Regardless of a persons pass or present, no one deserves to be shot and left for dead.
    My heart goes out to the Blumenfeld family. Trevor has a beautiful son that needs his daddy.

    Please don’t turn this article into a political point of view. In fact if you don’t have any positive vibes to send their way, please refrain from negative comments.

  19. A.S.F. says:

    My best wishes to Mr. Blumenfield, his family and friends. I hope his youth and the support of those who love him will help him make a full physical recovery soon. And, I hope that once it does, he will take the opportunity to examine any aspect of his life that may have contributed to this incident and make changes for the better–if not for his own sake, than for the sake of his children and others who love him and depend on him.

  20. anonymous says:

    Joe, you dont know Trevor. He never tried being ‘gangsta’, he kept a small, triangle of friends and has a wonderful family. Hes a normal 19 year old who cares for his son and works for his money.. Dont judge somebody off what you THINK. Trevor was the last person that needed a wake up call of being shot. He was probably one of the more smarter teens around palm coast.

    • A.S.F. says:

      anonymous says–If Mr Blumenfeld was dealing or using drugs on ANY level, this was not a responsible choice on his part. It doesn’t mean that he is, necessarily a bad person. I hope he recovers physically and gets whatever other kind of help he may require, as a result of all this. People enabling or excusing any kind of risky or illegal behavior on his part will only hurt him in the long run. It is natural for the people who care about him to feel defensive because of what is being reported. But, perhaps, a painful but honest evaluation of this sad situation is called for.
