PERSON WHO SHOT A MAN THIS MORNING. IT APPEARS THE SHOOTER AND VICTIM KNEW EACH OTHER. BACK ON THE BOAT. PASSENGERS ARE BACK GAMBLING ON TROPICAL BREEZE CASINO BOAT. IT REOPENED TODAY LESS THAN A WEEK AFTER PASSENGERS WERE FORCED TO JUMP FOR THEIR LIVES INTO THE FRIGID GULF. ONE PERSON DIED AFTER AND SEVERAL OTHERS WERE INJURED. I KNOW YOU SPOKE TO SEVERAL PASSENGERS BOARDING TODAY. Reporter: I DID. GOOD EVENING. I CAN TELL YOU THAT THE CUSTOMERS ARE FAITHFUL. WE FOUND OTHER DISCREPANCIES IN A REPORT INCLUDING WHAT HAPPENED WHEN THE SHUTTLE RAN INTO THE BACK OF THIS BUILDING. FOUR DAYS AFTER A SHUTTLE BOAT FIRE THE TROPICAL BREEZE CASINO REOPENED. WE SPOKE TO SEVERAL PASSENGERS BEFORE THEY BOARDED ABOUT THE FIRE THAT DESTROYED THE ISLAND LADY AND SENT MORE THAN A DOZEN PEOPLE TO THE HOSPITAL. A MOTHER OF TWO DIED FOLLOWING THE INCIDENT. THINGS HAPPEN. I MEAN, IT COULD HAVE HAPPENED TO ANYBODY. WE ARE NOT SCARED TO GO ON. WHY SHOULD I BE? THE U.S. COASTGUARD IS STILL INVESTIGATING THE CAUSE OF THE FIRE. WE FOUND THIS INSPECTION REPORT FOR THE ISLAND LADY. IN OCTOBER AFTER THE ISLAND LADY CRASHED INTO THE BACK DOCK OF A BUILDING, A COASTGUARD INVESTIGATION FOUND THE CAUSE OF THE CRASH WAS CAUSED BY WHAT IT CALLS A LACK OF MAINTENANCE. THE COASTGUARD FOUND THE CABLE GOING FROM THE MICRO COMMAND BOX TO THE TRANSMISSION BROKE WHILE THE BOAT WAS MOVING FORWARD. THE OPERATOR HAD NO WAY OF STOPPING THE SHUTTLE. THE BROKEN CABLE WAS FIXED THE NEXT DAY. IN MARCH, COASTGUARD REQUIRED THE COMPANY TO REPLACE WIRE NUTS, UPDATE LIGHT FIXTURES, REPLACE A BROKEN FIRE EXTINGUISHER BRACKET FOR STORE ACCESS TO THE FUEL SHUTOFF VALVE HATCH AFTER STAFF INSTALLED CARPET OVER IT AND PROVIDE PROPER DOCUMENTATION. IN APRIL OFF RECALLS FOUND A GENERATOR FUEL STRAINER PART MISSING AND A WATER HEATER WITH AN IMPROPER CABLE. ACCORDING TO THE REPORT, ALL ISSUES WERE RESOLVED. THESE ISSUES HAVE NOT STOPPED SOME CUSTOMERS FROM RETURNING. GOING FOR A REASON. IT’S SOMETHING TO DO. Reporter: BECAUSE THEY ARE USING THEIR CASINO BOAT, TRIPS ARE LIMITED. THEY HAD ONE TRIP TODAY AND THEY’LL RETURN BACK AGAIN
