Arrest made after man is shot Sunday in Port Richey

PORT RICHEY — Around 1 a.m. Sunday, deputies say, the man with long black hair went to his next-door neighbor's house with a .357-caliber magnum tucked into his waistband, looking for a fight.

The neighbor talked to Samuel Douglas Line through a window, a Pasco County sheriff's report says. Then Wayne McDermott moved to his doorway at 7120 James St. to confront Line.

McDermott was standing on his front deck, Line in the front yard, by the street, when Line pulled the "nickel-plated revolver" from his waistband, the report says.

"I'm going to make things right," he said, according to the report.

Then, the report says, he fired two rounds into McDermott's abdomen and right hip.

McDermott fell to the ground. Line went home.

McDermott was taken to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point, where he's expected to recover, sheriff's spokesman Doug Tobin said.

Line of 7116 James St. was arrested in his home soon after the shooting on a charge of attempted murder. He remained in the Land O'Lakes jail Monday in lieu of $250,000 bail.
