SPRING HILL — Authorities have arrested and charged an 18-year-old Spring Hill man with attempted second-degree murder in connection with a shooting at a Hess gas station early Friday.

Seth Dillon Ciarleglio is a suspect in the shooting, which occurred about 3 a.m. at the station at Mariner and Northcliffe boulevards, a Hernando Sheriff's Office spokesman confirmed. Authorities have not said what prompted the shooting. The victim, who has not been named, was treated at a local hospital and released.

Ciarleglio was arrested in Spring Hill just before 11 p.m. Tuesday. He was also charged with carrying a concealed weapon, possessing a weapon as a convicted felon, and resisting arrest without violence. He remained in the Hernando County Detention Center on Wednesday in lieu of $111,000 bail.

Michael William Levesque, 21, of Spring Hill was arrested at the same time and location and charged with being an accessory after the fact, records show. Levesque's charge, a second-degree felony, is also related to the shooting, sheriff's Lt. Michael Burzumato said. Levesque remained in jail Wednesday in lieu of $5,000 bail.

Ciarleglio pleaded guilty to burglary and grand theft in Hernando in 2010, records show. He also has a lengthy juvenile record in Florida.

Levesque was convicted of burglary in Hernando in 2009, records show.

The arrests came three days after Christopher James Maher, 18, of Spring Hill was arrested and charged with principal to attempted second-degree murder in connection with the shooting. His bail is set at $50,000, and he remained in jail Wednesday.
