Man hospitalized after second Brooksville shooting in three days

BROOKSVILLE — A 20-year-old man was nursing a gunshot wound to his left thigh after a dispute outside a Brooksville home early Sunday morning, authorities said.

Deputies said the shooting happened in front of a home at 19420 Wildwood Drive about 4:30 a.m. Two men were arguing outside the home when one of them pulled out a gun and shot the other man in the leg, said Sgt. Jim Powers, a spokesman for the Sheriff's Office.

Michael Lisk, 20, was transported to Brooksville Regional Hospital, where he was being treated Sunday afternoon. Lisk's condition wasn't immediately known.

"The victim may know the suspect, but he wasn't very cooperative," Powers said. "The detectives are still trying to speak with him."

Detectives were still searching late Sunday afternoon for the man who fired the weapon, Powers said. The Sheriff's Office considered the case one of aggravated battery.

It was the second shooting in three days in the rural, usually quiet Brooksville area. A man was shot three times Friday evening while mowing his lawn on Jacobson Road, north of the city.

Curtis Wesley Sanders, 45, of Brooksville faces a charge of attempted murder in the shooting. Sanders remained in the Hernando County Jail on Sunday in lieu of $250,000 bail.
