SPRING HILL, FL – On Monday, November 22, 2021 just before 2 a.m., Hernando County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a residence on Boswell Road in Spring Hill regarding a Shooting. The 9-1-1 caller told the operator an intruder entered the residence, and as a result, the intruder was shot. Upon arrival, deputies located an adult male in the garage suffering from at least one gunshot wound.

Between midnight and 1 a.m., the male sent text messages to the 9-1-1 Caller that he was ready to be picked up however, by then the caller refused to pick up the male, as he was “acting belligerent on the phone.”

Soon after entering the residence an argument ensued and the caller told the male to leave. The male refused and a brief physical altercation occurred between the two.

When the physical altercation was over, the 9-1-1 Caller retrieved a firearm. The two argued again. The 9-1-1 Caller directed the male to leave the residence several more times. After a short time, the two engaged in another physical altercation. The 9-1-1 Caller, still in possession of the firearm, fired at and struck the male. The male stumbled through the house to the garage, where he was located by deputies.

The 9-1-1 Caller was cooperative with detectives. The investigation is ongoing. and there is no additional information available at this time.
