SPRING HILL, Fla. – A Spring Hill woman has been arrested and charged with attempted second-degree murder after a shooting Sunday.
On Sunday at 10:51 p.m., Hernando County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a residence on Nantucket Lane in Spring Hill regarding a shooting.
The male victim called 9-1-1 to report that he had just been shot by a female acquaintance, who was later identified as 42-year-old Maranda Luciano.
The victim told deputies he had run from the residence after being shot by Luciano and was currently on Dorset Street.
The victim was located and transported by ambulance to a local trauma center for treatment and sustained non-life-threatening injuries due to the shooting. He is expected to make a full recovery, according to investigators.
Deputies then responded to the victim’s residence on Nantucket Lane but were unable to locate anyone inside the residence.
While canvassing the area, several witnesses told deputies they heard gunshots, but no one at the scene witnessed the shooting incident. Witnesses did report observing two vehicles leave the residence following the shooting.
Detectives were able to identify two individuals, a man, and a woman, who were possibly inside the residence when the shooting occurred.
The two individuals were located by detectives, who corroborated details of the shooting incident.
The witnesses advised they were all inside the residence playing cards when the victim became upset, and an argument between the victim and Luciano.
Investigation revealed the victim then went outside to calm down, while Luciano went to the bedroom to retrieve a loaded handgun.
Luciano then walked to the patio where she proceeded to shoot the victim. Deputies say she then went back into the bedroom after the initial shooting to reload the gun. When she returned to the patio area, the man was gone. Luciano then fled the area.
On Monday, detectives were able to locate Luciano at a family member’s home in Spring Hill.
Luciano was charged with Attempted Second-Degree Murder. She was transported to the Hernando County Detention Center where she is currently being held on a no-bond status.
