Eerily, many commenters warned Julio against posting the location and the address of his birthday party leading up to the incident, especially since he had been involved in gang-related shootouts before.

On June 14, just over one week before the deadly incident, Julio shared a poster with information about his public birthday bash: "Tampa, Fla. My Airbnb pool party June 21 (DM ME FOR ADDRESS) and my official birthday party June 22 at club Teasers ... Club address: 9700 N Nebraska Ave. Tampa, Fla. … pull-up."

One of the most popular comments on this post reads, "This s--t getting shot up."
