Puzzling case of Wesley Chapel driver who was shot in head

WESLEY CHAPEL

Clues sought in shooting of errant driver

Authorities are still trying to find out why a man was shot in the head early Saturday in Angus Valley — and who shot him. Robert Townsend, 28, was shot about 3 a.m. after he drove through yards in the neighborhood near Angus Valley Drive, said Pasco County sheriff's spokesman Kevin Doll. Townsend, of 6826 Woodsman Drive, is recovering in a hospital, Doll said. Doll would not say if there are any suspects or what might have led to the shooting. He urged anyone with information to call the Sheriff's Office at (727) 844-7711. Anonymous information can be left on the crime tips line toll-free at 1-800-706-2488.
