On Tuesday, just before 1:30 a.m., Hernando County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the Sunset Lounge, located at 5431 Spring Hill Drive in Spring Hill in regards to a possible Shooting.
Several callers told 911 operators that “numerous shots” were fired in the parking lot area of the lounge and at least one individual had been struck with gunfire.
