Up To $5K Reward: Multiple Shots Fired Toward Spring Hill Apartment Building, Sheriff Investigating

HERNANDO COUNTY, FL. – On Tuesday just before 6:30 p.m., Hernando County Sheriff’s deputies and Hernando County Fire and Emergency Services responded to the Hammock Ridge Apartment complex, located at 8332 Omaha Circle in Spring Hill in regards to a “shots fired” call for service.

Citizens in and around the area called 9-1-1 to report numerous shots being fired, from a moving vehicle, toward the apartment building.

Upon arrival, deputies observed several individuals standing in front of the apartment complex shouting that someone in a vehicle was shooting.  When asked if they knew the location or could provide a description of the suspect, the individuals stated “the shooter” left the area. 

They pointed to the area where the vehicle was located when the shots were being fired.

Deputies located several spent shell casings on the ground where the suspect vehicle was reportedly located.

Deputies interviewed numerous witnesses regarding the incident and received conflicting information regarding the description of the suspect and the suspect’s vehicle.

Some witnesses stated the suspect vehicle was a red sedan, driven by a black male. 

Other witnesses stated the suspect vehicle was a grey sedan, which may or may not have been missing the hood.  The grey sedan was reportedly driven by a white male with long frizzy hair and a red beard.

Deputies did locate damage to the exterior of the building and two parked vehicles that were struck by the projectiles.

The case has been turned over to Major Case detectives who will continue the investigation.
