Deputies say Land O'Lakes man may have shot himself on his boat

LAND O'LAKES — The man shot on his boat early Thursday in what initially appeared to be a violent robbery may have shot himself, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said several hours later.

A call came into the Sheriff's Office around 2 a.m. reporting a robbery and shooting on Lake Joyce, said spokesman Kevin Doll.

The injured man was taken to a local hospital by helicopter, where he was interviewed by detectives. But Doll said the victim's statements don't match up with evidence at the scene, and it's possible he shot himself.

The man's condition remains unavailable.
