SPRING HILL, FL – On Sunday, December 13, 2020 at approximately 6 p.m, Hernando County Sheriff’s Office Deputies were dispatched to a domestic disturbance call at a residence in the 11000 block of Callaghan Avenue in Spring Hill near Winterville Road and Quintilis Street.
The person who contacted law enforcement told dispatchers that a middle-aged male and his elderly mother had engaged in a verbal dispute inside the residence. During the dispute, the male battered his elderly mother.

Deputies removed the elderly female from the scene; relocating her to a site where she could be treated by paramedics from Hernando County Fire and Emergency Services.
Other deputies immediately began attempting to establish contact with the male subject. Deputies continually attempted communication for hours. The male was known to possess several firearms therefore deputies had not made entry into the residence.
