Suspect held on charge of first-degree murder

TAMPA, Fla. -- A man charged with killing a Vanderbilt
football player turned himself in Friday, police said.

Rodney "Roscoe" Roman was charged with first-degree murder in
the death of Kwane Doster, a running back with Vanderbilt, and two
counts of attempted murder, Tampa police spokesman Joe Durkin said.

Roman was accompanied by his lawyer, Daniel Castillo, when he
surrendered at the Hillsborough County jail, Durkin said.

My client is not the person they are looking for," Castillo
told The Tampa Tribune. "They got the wrong guy."

Doster was shot to death Sunday after his friends got in a
dispute with three other men about whose car was better, Durkin
said.

Police said Roman, who is in his late 20s, fired the shot that
killed Doster and was the driver of the car that pulled up
alongside the vehicle Doster was riding in Sunday.

Roman's lawyer did not immediately return a message Friday
seeking comment.

Doster was the first Vanderbilt player recognized as the
Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Year in 2002 after setting
a team record of 798 rushing yards.
