Tidbits of info are still dripping in, but according to former OW staffer Micky Michalec on Facebook, beloved local musician Ralph Ameduri (The Legendary JC's, the Rondos) was shot and killed last night while subbing for Thomas Wynn & the Believers at Jessie's Bar in Winter Haven, reports ABC News. Word is that there was a robbery gone wrong, a gun went off and tragedy ensued. We'll be updating this post throughout the weekend as more solid info comes in. Ameduri will be sorely missed. Update: Those interested in coming out for a toast to Ralph should be at Will's Pub at 4 p.m. today (Saturday). Also, the Sentinel has posted a story here.
