Port Richey man charged in 2008 attempted-murder case

HOLIDAY — A 19-year-old Port Richey man was arrested on a warrant Friday after authorities say he was involved in a 2008 attempted-murder case.

On. Dec. 23, Pedro Miguel Rodriguez and two other men lured Bryan David Burke, 18, to the A-1 Beverage store on Moog Road with the intention of robbing him, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said.

When Burke got there, the men began breaking his car windows and shooting into his car. Burke was shot in the chest and left arm, and was hospitalized. The store's security camera recorded the incident.

Deputies say the other men involved were David Gagne, 18, who was charged with attempted murder on Dec. 24; and Michael Phillips, 16, who was charged with attempted murder in January.

In addition to attempted murder, Rodriguez was charged with armed robbery and conspiracy. Rodriguez, of 6210 Westport Drive, is being held in lieu of $80,000 bail in the Land O'Lakes jail.
